BCU 1 star

Well after being persuaded by friends I opted to do my BCU 1 star. I had a great day and learnt loads, although I didn't get to practice what I really wanted to learn... Rolling the kayak! 

We did however go through, efficient forward paddling (torso rotation), paddling backwards, edging, turning and capsizing!
A great day for £75 at Tallington Lakes

Sailing Quest on Rutland Water

After my friends first sail onboard Quest, he wanted to come out again. We were fortunate enough to have a steady force 2 - 3. I payed the launching fee and he brought lunch. Ryan improved lots during the day, he must be reading up on sailing in his spare time!
