Paddlesport on the canal

I was working in my role as Associate Lecturer at Bridgwater College today with the Year 1, Level 3 Outdoor Students looking at transferable paddlesport skills on the Bridgwater Canal. Keeping with the basic skills of paddling forwards, turning and sideways all students had a go as Tandem Canoe, Tandem SOT, Solo Canoe and Solo SOT.  There was even time to test their balance and see how stable the canoes really are. A wet day today with heavy rain at times but this did not dampen their enthusiasm.
