Today we welcomed Donald and Marion. Chris spent some time before the warm up on our paddle technique, encouraging us to rotate through our hips and lengthen our outside arm.

Our white board with our boat plan is working well, although our designated seat position seems to fall out our head the moment we leave the pub!

Today was a perfect opportunity for folk to try out helming. Esmee took us off the pontoon and then it was Sonia, Anne-Marie and Toby. You’ll have to take our word that Anne-Marie helmed, as we don’t have any photographic evidence.

It’s fair to say they all took to it like the proverbial ducks to water.
