Jenny took myself, Alistair and Gillian out for a training morning on Thursday. It was both cold and windy so we were on the water in no time. Jenny took us through some edging drills and flat water warm ups before running us down the drops. We spent some time at each drop doing fairy gliding, breaking and and out and some surfing! We covered a fair bit of the BCU 2star syllabus on our trip.

After a while we tried a few rolls on the river and self rescues. As we got further down the drops the wind began to pick up, so we decided to just run the last drop, without stopping too long at it to prevent ourselves getting cold.
Big thanks to Jenny for the great day out, learned loads! Would love to do it again soon!
