George Fell

George FellAfter completing an MPhys (Oxon) specialising in atmospheric physics, George spent 2½ years in the Antarctic working as a meteorologist for British Antarctic Survey, and later worked as a weather forecaster for the Met Office.

George now spends most of his time doing wet things in boats. Perched between the old and new BCU schemes, he holds 5* WW kayak, open canoe and sea kayak, a variety of coaching awards and is actively involved in paddlesport coach education.

George has an interest in the evidence base behind coaching models and when not trying to remain above canoes and kayaks he can sometimes be seen dangling from paragliders.
