Back on The Wye today from Lucksall Campsite to Ross on Wye. Fast flows certainly helped the progress but there were some wicked headwinds at time. I did get a tail wind and the sail up for a very short time but probably wasn't worth the effort.

Today was the first day of a River Wye expedition. Hereford to Lucksall Campsite. The river was flowing well at arou d 3 knots meaning very little paddling to do. Some wet rain periods interspersed with sunny spells.

A nice day (in between hail storms) biking on The Quantock Hills with my Level 3 Outdoor Education students from Bridgwater and Taunton College. A few ups and downs, a bit of mud and a race against time added to the challenge of the day.

Today I was on an update as a Trainer Assessor for the Royal Lifesaving Society Beach Lifeguard qualification. A new manual, new presentation slides and some skills practice on the board was the order of the day down in Exmouth. A little chilly in the sea but it certainly could have been colder.
Thank East Devon Training for the pictures

That is the last canoe training session done with my L4 Public Sevices students from Bridgwater and Taunton College . Next week we are off to The Wye for an expedition. Not a bad day, low wind, warm and even had time to make a brew along the way.

Getting wet in the Melte and Sychryd Gorges today as part of my Risk Assessment process. Hannah joined me so that I had someone to carry the bag and star in the pictures. It was a little low and floating down stream bouncing off a few rocks has given me a few bruises on my bottom but otherwise all good.
