@peakukkayaking testing an early prototype camera cover during the rain at @leevalleywwc on Saturday. The lengths that Pete Astles will go to to ensure the robustness of his products has to be admired.
Well done to all athletes and volunteers at this weekends ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup at Lee Valley - Great event by British Canoeing.
Also fantastic to see new innovation in the sport - if you haven’t seen it yet Extreme Slalom racing is a great new event for canoeing and hopefully the Olympics
After arriving back from Slovenia, where we ran a White Water Kayak course, we have had another busy week here at AcwaTerra Adventure Consultants.
We've had @sallylizzle out doing 6 Technical Advice days in the Lake District and Sussex, @brynwilliamsmic , Rory and myself running a Mountain Leader Training and myself running a @Britishcanoeing Paddlesport Leader Assessment, a Statement of Competence day for a Moorland Leader and a Coasteering fitness and competence day.
We even found our own endless pool in the mountains, but chilly for dip though!
Amazing day with @british.canoeing and these lovely ladies at @leevalleywwc for the Canoe Slalom World Cup. Watched some awesome slalom racing, got Extreme Slalom envy, and even managed an impromptu rafting session......with the obligatory swim when our raft guide flipped us in!
I didn’t expect to be rafting at @leevalleywwc today, no matter taking a swim! (That’s me hitting the other raft & grabbing the throw line first)
But, meeting our fantastic group of @british.canoeing Women’s Paddling Ambassadors today was always going to be a fun day...we just took the fun up a notch!
Such a fantastic time at the Slalom World Cup, watching the Slalom & Extreme Slalom action!
