At the moment we are trying very hard to do everything needed to complete our UKCC Level 2 coaching. There are two things we really need to work on, improving our canoe skills to 3* standard and logging 10 hours of canoe coaching. Today we decided we should get some hours on the stick. However we aren’t really canoe fans….Bonnie Kirkwall Bay
We don’t like canoeing for the following reasons:
1) It’s always windy!
2) It’s always windy!
3) It’s always windy!
Today we headed into the marina for a couple of hours of practice.Mackayak does some solo practiceNorthern Kayaker comes back from Cromwell RoadPootling round in the Halloween sunshine
We paddled in tandem for a while before taking turns doing some solo practice. I tried hard to work on paddling on my left side and getting a nice rhythm with my j strokes. To finish off, we went tandem again and took a tour of the whole marina, even peeking our nose out of the shelter of the harbour.Mackayak looks north towards the open seaPassing some of the local fishing fleet
Today we had a bit of an opportunity to try and get comfortable again in an open boat, however, all too soon it was time to go home, the clocks changed today and sunset was at 1623. Winter is certainly on the way.
