Sun sun sun!


The sun is finally here and we have been taking full advantage of it to improve our paddling skills. The DisTIL team and Josh headed over to the River Wye paddling our canoes from Kearne Bridge to Ye Olde Ferrie Inn where we enjoyed the hospitality of Jamie and his team tucking into a lovely meal and bedding down in the bunk house.

Taking advantage of the calm waters to practise our canoe rescues before we then hit our first bit of White water... The Yat which while proving challenging enabled us to really get to grips with how the Kayaks behave in the river.

Jenni and Simon had a busy weekend using their new skills at Asburnham Place  Jenni performed her first real rescue and successfully fished someone out of the lake. Simon really enjoyed the absailing on Saturday with Christian Aid. This week we have continued our on the water training getting to grips with our new rafting kit.

Thanks to James and Josh for some great fun in the sun!
