Today my brother took his forst steps on the water. When I bought my new boat I sold mine to a friend who sold his to my brother.
The boat is a perception Carolina. My brother got kitted out last month when we visited Highland Canoes in Aviemore.
So it was straight to work with the forward stroke, ah I remember trying to get the river boat to go straight when I started all those months ago !
We just paddled along the shore with the wind at our backs then paddled back into the wind.
We also covered sweep strokes. Next lesson we'll build on the forward and sweeps and maybe try some braces. When it's not so chilly.
