On the 14/5/16 the club organised a Training Day at Southwater Lake which was a change from our usual venue of Ardingly Reservoir.
During the day the club organised a 1 star course for 2 members and a 2 star course for 2 other members. The weather was nice and sunny and dry which was great for the rescue session in the afternoon.
Here is a video that Sam took on her 1 star course on that Day. Watch out for her classic capsize at the end of the day. Well done Samantha for a great video.
Here are some of the comments from some of the participants from the training day:-
“I Had a fantastic day thank you everyone. I learnt a great deal and am looking forward to practicing all these new skills. Glad the weather turned out better than forecasted ” Adam
“I had a fantastic time on Saturday and thankfully didn’t ache too much on Sunday! Special thanks to Julia and Marion for their expert advice….can;t wait to get on to the river in June! ” Samantha
