Water confidence and safety pool session

Paddlers for Life held their first water confidence and safety pool session at Kendal Leisure Centre.


Members attended a water confidence session and  Yes that is snow outside!.

Yes that is snow outside!

Paul, from Low Wood watersports centre, refreshed our skills for buddying up and keeping warm in the water to look after fellow paddlers. Participants also discussed and practiced techniques for swimming as a group to safety and strategies for emptying water from the dragon boat and getting paddlers back on board. Finally, to build confidence, paddlers experienced surfacing from under the water inside an upturned canoe and the experience of capsizing from the canoe.
There is another session on the 19th. of April after our paddling session for members who missed this session.
