which is the real world?

Congratulations to Rachel Smith for achieving Member of the Month for January!
With such immense enthusiasm and commitment across the whole Club, selecting an individual has been quite a task, as every member is a 'team player'.
 Sunday's sea kayak training sessions ran from Fenella Beach in Peel, journeying along the West coast of the Isle of Man, (in bouncy conditions).
 Just a few snaps from surf landing at the finish, as the improver session was set to challenge the whole group. Those with more experience paddled with the less experienced...
 After a light lunch, those on the Intermediate session headed South to Niarbyl, rock hopping along the way, and testing themselves in various tasks : )
 The 'tail of rocks' was picturesque as ever. 
 Arriving back in Peel and packing away as the sun made a colourful display of blotchy blues and oranges... 
Well done Rach - a surprise treat is on the way to you!
