Isle of Man experiences

 Coasteering exploration session 
 Sea Kayaking Trip off Niarbyl for a group of old school mates
 Evening Coasteering session around Peel Castle with conditions... : )
Check the Calendar for more open Coasteering sessions.
 The last few Sunday Adventure Club training sessions have split into smaller pods, and been working on personal skills and understanding, then developing these in the appropriate environment... George took the Intermediate group around the Calf in the afternoon, saw them back at the slip 5 hours later! : )
 A 40th birthday Corporate Evening Paddle in flat calm conditions... and the rain ceased too.
 The next open Evening Paddle on the Calendar is Wednesday 6pm.
Last night's Evening Paddle off Laxey, in benign water, heaps of bird-life.
Grey Herons being dive attacked by Gulls, Eider and Mallard ducks, Oyster Catchers, we regularly see Curlews, and as hoped for a Peregrine Falcon, which flew in to greet us, swooping very low over the group, then disappearing from sight over Clay Head....

A fantastic paddle and as always great cloud formations : )

ps. This year's BCU Centre Inspection was another very positive experience.
Nice to be told things are sharp, from an external verifier.
And some handy advice for simplifying admin too!
