Beginners Trip on Teith; 28th Oct

Paddlers:  Steve Thomas, Gordon, Harry, Ross, Andrew, Steve Wheaton, Rowan, Alan, Chris & Jack
River Level:0.82
Weather: Fair
Excellent days kayaking on the Teith led by Steve T.  New paddlers coped really well.  There were a couple of swimmers, an impressive backwards descent of the Torrie rapid by Andy.   Water was warm enough for the younger members of the group to try swimming in the current at the end.

A few lessons learnt – clip your throw bag on, check you really do have your helmet with you (ask John and Chris) and as a group, put in spare gear.
