HI All

Yep, We have the opportunity to practise capsizes etc in the warm, clean training pool at xCel. We are planning to start at 20:30 sharp (I suggest getting there no later than 20:15 so that we can be changed and ready for 20:30.. We will have the pool until 22:00 and we should aim to make best use of the time as it costs a packet :-)

We will have a number of coaches available and we will be taking turns in dunking each other as well as practising capsizes, rescues and, for the more masochistic , Eskimo Rolls. 
This will probably be our last outing of the season and is a good opportunity to practise without being covered in "Thames nasties" .
Please let me know if you can make it as places are limited. At this stage we need to restrict it to Adults and those of explorer age.
We will be having a cleaning session on Saturday 12th November starting at 09:30 to clean the boats and ensure that we don't introduce any nasties into xcel ... Please try to come along as there are a couple of other jobs we can try and do as well as washing boats... we need to inspect as many of our kayaks as possible too. Pressure washers and trestles are very welcome.

Cheers for now
