Basic Training, Loch Lomond 13th/14th September


Paddlers: Alan, Tim, Stuart, Sue, Geoff, Mark and Robin

Weather: Glorious. Mist cleared quickly leaving blue skies and sun. Flat calm

Report: An excellent morning which saw us visiting the islands of Inchvannach and Inchconnachan. Remarkably good paddling from the beginners and excellent coaching from Robin and Mark. Sadly camera battery failed so no beautiful pictures.


Paddlers: Elaine, Rachel, Alan, Tim, Samantha, Geoff and Euan

Weather: Cold and overcast. Slight breeze.

Report: Different boats, different weather, different coaches and a different route. From the beach we paddled south and up the river to past the bridge. All were coping very well with the slight swell so we headed out to Fraoch where we went ashore. All did the seal launch back into the water;some looking decidedly nervous and all looking shocked after the immersion. A gentle “in line, left and right” paddle back to Luss where we were met by Mr Elaine, Mr Rachel and families.  A good training morning.
