Keni coaches in preparation for the Thames paddle in the Jubilee Pageant.
What a gorgeous, sunny day for paddlers as Keni came over from Three River Serpents to coach us in preparation for our Queen’s Flotilla paddle next weekend and the Windermere ‘Longest Lake Longest Race’ soon after.
In the morning two boats did a sustained 30 minute paddle round the north end of Windermere in gorgeous sunshine. The gusting wind and water ski boats allowed them to practice in choppy conditions ready for the Thames next week. Take a look at the dragon head on our new boat!
In the middle of all this fun Shane, a local artist with links to Paddlers for Life, was taking photos and videos in preparation for an artwork he is creating. He really entered into the spirit of paddling by taking a turn on the drum.
