Further Aboyne Canoe Club Grant

published: 30 June, 2016

The grant part funded a 1 day training course to go through basic safety procedures on calm water. The techniques included the use of a throw line, assisting in the rescue of other participants, self-rescue, and towing. The course involved using a variety of craft including canoes, kayaks and sea kayaks. On a personal level, this course helped me as I like to kayak on my own, and the self-rescue techniques were very useful. I would also like to pursue my 3 star white water award so I view this training as the basis for the safety skills on that curriculum.

I was not expecting £100 and am extremely thankful for the grant, which I will use to attend more basketball events.
