 The only thing certain in life is that things will change...

 ...and we will strive to change with them : )

 The season is changing, people are changing, business is changing, we are changing.

Here's to change...  for the better!

Scottish Eclipse

I've been over on Skye with Kim, John and Tim, this week, stopping briefly on the way up to experience the Mountain Bike trail centre at Ae, SW Scotland.

The lads were on a BCU 5* Training at Gordon Brown's Centre

 Watched the Eclipse phenomenon from the centre, before heading out to complete the final day of training... awesome!!

Thanks to Howard Jeffs and Gordon Brown for a really interesting training course, in a superior location, excellently delivered : )
I was observing the course for my ongoing professional development, really useful.

Catch you on the water soon!

Night Navigation

Friday Evening - Senior Club Night Navigation Training

Setting out from Fenella Beach, Peel and using St Patrick's Isle and the main bay (with the sea conditions we had) to practice techniques which aid leading and navigating in low visibility...

Saturday Afternoon - Indoor Kayaking

It was the last of the Indoor Kayaking sessions scheduled until October...
Focus is now on developing skills outdoors : )
We continue to run indoor kayaking parties on demand, year round, on Saturday afternoons, 3pm.

 Sunday's Adventure Club Sea Kayaking... 

...from Port Erin beach, round the Calf and out to Chicken Rock : )

A delightful visit to Coire an t-Sneachda... total contrast to every other winter Scottish adventure, this one was actually enjoyable at the time...

...arriving at Glenmore Lodge at 2am after a long drive up monday evening with Jim. A leisurely cooked breakfast, and a few purchases in Aviemore, plenty of room in the upper (Coire Cas) car park, and an icy walk in past a fair few chirpy Ptarmigans : )

 The 'routes' which offered the most ice / neve to rock ratio were the classic gullies and adopting a series of grooves and corners, making for straight forward yet rewarding ascent.
Topping out into... almost no wind.

Clear conditions were being maximised by many folk out to play, including the local air rescue unit training around the Northern Corries.

A friendly welcome at the Lodge, a terrific night's sleep, memorable outdoor adventures to be savoured and sunshine with real warmth... Heading home before the storm!
