Re-discovering Kayaking

Tuesday –

Today I was lucky to be out on the Loch with Steve (our Kayaking instructor for today) together with Jamal, Lukas, Kane, Matt, Gary and Trystan. The sun shone (for the most part) and Steve and I threw a range of 2 Star and 3 Star kayaking skills at the lads…and not once did they falter – some soon to be Olympic paddlers there me thinks. Following an excellent lunch we were all back onto the Loch, however the tide had come in and the wind had decided to play! The waves were now 1-2 feet and so we decided to have a canoe polo match…a tense match ensued in which Jamal managed to land his aircraft carrier of a kayak onto Kane’s head…but all was well, it missed everything vital! The final score…1-0!!

We then headed into the river that fed the loch for a “rolling clinic” – similar to a rolling pin…but with more water – and we started to put Jamal, Trystan and Kane through the basics of eskimo rolling.

…a great day (something that I used to do most weekends)…thanks guys.
