    Fingers crossed for you getting the use of them hopefully they'll supply instructors too.
    Good luck with it. The cadets will love it.

    While I love the Lakes very much indeed (would live and work there if I could), it's a 600 mile round trip for me. Going for just one day isn't feasible with today's fuel prices and time pressures,...

    But no swimmers? Ah - because I stayed home! :D

    (I never realised I had a medical problem until now, Blott: we both suffer that same allergy!)

    Yup. That's what got me. Nasty gust and right in the middle of a rudder stroke. Trapped my paddle and over I went. No time to let it go or correct. Ho hum.

    I dunno. I go and do all that falling out (or should that be in?) so you can practice rescues - very nicely done, by the way! - and nobody gets a picture of me in action! :)

    Nice blog, Blott. Not been hearing the song of the paddle recently but you have sparked it off again.

    The Nene down Peterborough way or the Well and at Stamford are your best bets.
