Things you might not know about......The river Thames:
DisTIL have been conquering their challenges and mastering their canoe and kayak techniques in preparation for their BCU (British canoe union) level 1 coaching course. We had a glorious, if not a little windy, day canoeing on the Thames. Trying out new strokes and perfecting the ones we had previously learnt. We were blessed with sunshine and amazing aerial displays by the local kites. We journeyed from Grafton Lock to Newbridge and practised our x rescues. Thanks to Josh for his brilliant coaching it was a good day to be on the river. We are looking forward to our next journey in Kayaks in November.
We were also back in the pool this week to work on our rolls and improve our rescuing techniques. Ben successfully mastered his roll and Josh worked on his sit on top skills. While Luke improved his confidence in the crafts. Thanks to Rachel, James, Jonny and JP for the one on one instruction :-)
