This week we had the first kayaking group session. Everyone learned how to get in and out of a boat, capsize and empty the boat safely.
|Bobbing about in buoyancy aids - blue llamas get wet!|
After trying to paddle the boat in various ways with hands only, everyone looked relaxed.
|Using hands as paddles.|
Then we started using paddles - what a difference!
Time for a relay race!
|Getting to grips with paddles.|
Gradually everyone began to get a bit more control, until...
|getting into position...|
they were whizzing along quite happily!
Well done everyone - you took on the challenge, persevered and learned lots!
