A busy day starting with delivering some High Ropes and Low Ropes Training at Cannington Activity Centre followed by some staff observations at Bridgwater YMCA. Basically I have ben watching people work all day! This afternoon was some last minute packing and admin as I am off to Northampton tomorrow to meet with the group from Caroline Chisholm School who I will be joining in Malawi from Wednesday.
This weekend I have been at Quantock Lodge running a NRASTC (National Rescue Award for Swim Teaches and Coaches) for Wet and High Adventures who are a RLSS Approved Training Provider. Well done to all 7 candidates who passed following an independent assessment by Andy and Andy.
Today I was teaching SOT (Sit on Top Kayaks) from a SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard). This was a NCS group from Cannington Activity Centre. Initially due to a kayak being unavailable but it worked so well I will be doing it again tomorrow. One scary moment when a pair paddled into me and I through I was going in but other wise great. Nice and warm on the water. A morning and afternoon group with a couple of swimmers on each.
After a morning of cutting ropes, drilling, screwing and general admin, the refurbishment of the Low Ropes course at Cannington Activity Centre was complete. There were 4 NCS groups on it this afternoon giving it a good test. Such a nice afternoon after getting drenched in the morning whilst setting ropes.
