A week of wonder

Coasteering on the South Coast - beginning Saturday morning...
on our extended challenging route taking in some absolutely stunning coastal features. 
 Finishing in time for afternoon tea at the local tea-room, with home-made refreshments galore!

"It was an awesome awesome awesome weekend thank you so much...
Needless to say you, Sam and everyone else did an outstanding job, so please give a big thanks to the boys and also your folks for the food and taxi!"
Sunday's Sea Kayaking training off Laxey - working on paddle awareness and personal performance..
thanks for a super birthday paddle today, I felt very special having a little birthday party on Garwick Beach!  As always, a good fun, wet paddle with some great friends - what more could a girl ask for on her birthday :-) 
See you next weekend"

The afternoon comprised a surfing session, with additional pointers where required... A brilliant Day!

The week was truly eventful, an included our annual Approved Centre BCU Inspection, where we received outstanding feedback.
Jim emailed in to say he's posted a Blog or two from him and Kirstine's adventures on the Isle of Man, during the Isle of Man Sea Kayak Symposium Week.

Common Sense Common Safety 
"The UK government is looking for an increase in the number of young people participating in adventurous activities and the option of a ‘no cost’ route to demonstrating compliance with the new Code of Practice for provision of adventurous activities, consistent with the Common Sense Common Safety recommendation to reduce the cost burden to business."
The Minister for Education is considering the possibility of removing schools from the need to comply with H&S legislation or, if that proves impossible, removing the duty of care for H&S from employers and giving it to teachers instead." (quoted from IOL)

Theia has also had a week of wonderment : )
