5th and 6th of June, 2010 – White Water 3* Training and Assessment

A great weekend of coaching and assessment with Jim Gobson of Aquaplay Scotland for a group of us from Edinburgh Kayak Club.

Both days were based on the Spey, Saturday’s training at the Knockando Rapid and Sunday’s paddle started there and continued as a journey down the Spey finishing at Aberlour.

Saturday was a gorgeous sunny day and it was a relief to do the rescues and swim work in the afternoon to cool down but Sunday in complete contrast was cool and rainy but we were so busy working on our paddling that it wasn’t really too unpleasant.

Although, thankfully I passed, there is definite room for improvement in terms of refining paddle skills and in getting more confidence on white water. A case of just getting out more on rivers – the last time in a WW kayak on a river was fourteen months previously!

No photos unfortunately.
