Overnight Paddling Trip

Yesterday I met with Beth and Sion who are undertaking my Long Term Instructor Development programme for their introduction to paddling. We started with some skills coaching on the Exeter canal trying out different kayaks and canoes before selecting appropriate craft for our trip. We loaded up with equipment and headed of down the canal to The Turf Lock pub were we camped for the night sandwiched between the canal and the estuary. After a lovely meal in the pub and a good nights sleep, we repacked the boats and crused the tide upstream before switching back onto the canal for rescues and wet training
