Making a Splash

p1310010Fifteen leaders and Explorer Scouts recently started kayak skills training in the warmth and comfort of Bannockburn High School pool. Over the next six weeks they will concentrate on honing and developing stroke and rescue techniques and confidence on the water.

In Spring the group will progress to Airthey Loch at the University before going up to Loch Venachar where it is hoped that some may be put forward for assessment for their kayaking Activity Permit.

The course is being run by Charlie Rowley, Mark Wright and Niall Williamson, and is part of a rolling programme of kayaking and canoeing training aimed primarily at those interested in gaining a permit. If you wish further information about this, please contact Charlie on 01786 860538
