Go Canoeing 2016

On the 10th September 2016 we started our annual four week Go Canoeing Course with 3 pool sessions followed by a full day on the reservoir. Here is Sam Boyd’s video from the course.

The full day of paddlesport was spent at South water lake on the 1/10/16 where we all had a go at Kayaking and canoeing. Julia did some open boat coaching with Sam in the morning.

Mark, Abigail and  Rebecca on the Go Canoeing course all did kayaking in the rain in the morning.

Here is Adrian’s video of a very wet day

Then we all warmed up over lunch.

The sun came out in the afternoon and the Go Canoeing group went open boating whilst Sam  perfected her two star kayak skills with Adrian.

We finished the day by trying out various rescue techniques and getting very wet indeed.

Well done to Rebecca, Abigail and Mark who all achieved their “British Canoeing Paddlestart Award” by attending the whole course.

Here are some of the comments from some of the participants on the day

Yes it was a great day yesterday and even better to get the different types of weather, it didn’t spoil our interest! Kevin the coach

Also to say I thoroughly enjoyed last Saturday 1/10/16! Mark Humm

Thanks to Adrian, Julia, Sam Kenny and kevin who where our coaches for the day.
