The Club Tuesday evening Paddles are now thoroughly underway!

Evening of 23rd May Loch Lomond (Tuesday Evening Sessions Resume!!)

This marked the beginning of our return to Paddling and was the 1st Club Tuesday Evening session in a long while. It was all about reintroducing ourselves back to paddling after the extended COVID break – well over a year for some. Paddle was relaxed, remembering some of the skills we haven’t used in a while. We launched at Luss – hopped around Inchtavannach, Inchconnachan, Inchcruin and back to Luss. We were lucky enough to spot an Osprey!!! Many a paddler takes up twitching!

Weather was much calmer than forecast – F2. Overcast, with a few showers.

Paddlers: Gordon, Lee, Rachel , Jonny & Vonna
