Youth Scholarship

The Youth Scholarship Training session (TR. 23) took place yesterday,Tuesday, and have now some confirmed details....
The youth expedition team for the summer of 2014 will be 9 students, the expedition location will be Vancouver Island, and itinerary and outline logistics have also been confirmed.
 I'm really looking forward to the specific elements of training now this important part of the program has been completed : )

Straight after the Youth training session, we headed to Sam's Fundamental Movement Patterns at Patrick Hall, to align and stretch our bodies. (The next session is slightly earlier, starting at 6pm next Tuesday.)

Then onto the Discover Sea Kayaking 'Indoor' course at Western Swimming Pool, Peel, for the second session in this course. Steady, controlled progression. A great way to finish a very productive day!!

BCU 2 Star Award - Training

Under the leadership of John and George, the BCU 2* training course continued on Saturday morning at Ramsey, working mainly on forwards paddling and manoeuvring the open boats on the main lake before finishing off with some self rescues.
These are just a few images taken by John.

Sunday Sea Kayak Coaching

Sunday's sea kayak training sessions ran from Peel Fenella Beach.
Rock hopping and incident scenarios were the main themes of the morning Adventure Club training session. Quite challenging, and very wet!!
The afternoon Discover Sea Kayaking 'Outdoor' course students took a more sheltered rock hopping journey, challenging their skills at their level. Again a lot of fun!!

So many very engaged folk - really pleasing to see.
Looking forward to the weekend again : )
