Song of the paddle – kayak training

BLS Kayak 2 Star Pre Assessment 9 May 2015

An enthusiastic group of ten BLS Volunteers of all ages has been taking part in two weekends of Carrickfergus Harbour-based Canoe Association of Northern Ireland (CANI) 2-Star Instructor Pre-Assessment in perfect conditions – even if the water wasn’t quite as warm as they hoped, because they all got rather wet during the obligatory capsize and swim ashore required on the course!

Big thanks to BLS Volunteer Paul Green for getting this wonderful initiative moving, and for support from the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People (formerly known as Hilton in the Community Foundation).
