Weather: Beautiful but strong easterly at start of evening

Report: The second evening of the Young Beginners Course was beautiful but with a strong easterly wind. Paddled over to the marina where we got a little shelter and practiced Sweep strokes, Rudders and Low Brace turns. Then the return into the wind to the lagoon  which proved a real challenge for some of the smaller paddlers. After Draw Stroke teaching and practice on past the Maid into the river and then on the Balloch Castle pier.
