Hosting young carers.
Paddlers for Life entertained a group of young carers.
The young people were gathering in Windermere for a well deserved two day break.
Paddlers already had the two dragon boats on the water by the time our visitors arrived.
After a safety brief and paddling guidance, two boats set off with approximately twenty novice paddlers.
Peter and Paul, helming, took us through various paddling exercises with our guests striving to get the timing and sustain their paddling! We paddled southwards down Windermere taking a break at Windermere St. Anne’s School boathouse.
A race between boats on the way back energised the young paddlers for a while along with a couple of songs.
What an interesting day in lovely calm weather and sunshine!
