Having recently joined Liverpool Canoe Club, I replied to a message from Helen Bolister asking for any paddlers interested in free sea coaching! Helen needed paddlers to practice on as she had her coaching assessment coming up. An 6.00am early start saw me once again at Rhoscolyn for 8:30am, where I met Gareth Jones, who had also volunteered and Helen shortly afterwards.
Helen is a very good coach. We did lots of turning practice and forward paddling. Pretty much everything I did on my day with Roger Chandler. We also played in the outer tide race, which I really enjoyed and followed this with lots of rock hopping, although I was perhaps a little less brave than Gareth in his plastic boat. Great practice for perfecting those turns.
Sorry there are no pictures of us surfing on the tidal races. I guess we were kind of busy. Many thanks to Helen Bolister for an excellent fun days free coaching.
