KKC at Dacre Lake

I'd organised a simple day for club members to get out and experience a little fun and skills training at this local venue. Many of our junior members only receive training in a pool environment which I believe, although good, does not allow them to attain their best potential. Add to this the environmental factors and I think is an all round better learning environment.

We had much weather but everybody had fun and maybe even learnt a thing or two, definitely a productive day.

Friends & Family Paddle

A lovely forecast, what better than to spend the day on a chilled paddle with friends and family on a paddle and picnic day.

KKC Howsham Slalom

A big event on the KKC calendar and a lot of effort had been made to make sure this weekend was as good as previous years.

Unable to make the Saturday I made up for it on Sunday by providing safety cover at the bottom of the weir. Several rescues later and I had the chance to compete with Scott in the club C2 - the less said the better....albeit we didn't swim...

The kids did much better..

Moderate Water Leader Assessment

On the last couple of days of June I headed north to Grandtully on the River Tay. I had prepared for the two day assessment and I felt confident, lets just hope everything went to plan.

The assessment was very relaxed, it was really nice to paddle both the River Tay and Loch Tay over the two days with other aspirant canoe leaders and canoeists .

Glad to say I passed the the assessment and a big 'thank-you' to Ken Hughes for giving me the skills and confidence to be where I am now....
