Regular paddling session.
Paddling 13th. August 2017
Paddlers took Mary out today for a lovely warm paddle up to Ambleside with our lovely Goddess at the helm Roz who guided us through our training with set pieces of building up the paddling from 50% through to 70%,80% and 100% also in unleashing the beast and giving 20 strokes at maximum with extra reach without changing the paddling rate.
We also did some race starts along with lengthening the stroke, digging deep for optimum blade work, reaching and steadying the rate. Sian was able to film much of this without getting either cold or wet.
In the afternoon we had a lovely paddle down to White Cross Bay but the wind was against us on the way down, along with the lake being busy with water sports, ferries and kayaks. Mary surfed a little in the wash but we all knew we were in safe hands with Roz. The light, reflection and the water was mesmerising today and there were smiles all round after the great paddle ……….a good day had by all.
