Begginners' trips from Port Erin.



Along with Sam and John I took two groups out from Port Erin. There were stiff Northerly winds creating a challenging swell off Bradda Head. This subsided during the evening allowing the more experienced paddlers to venture beyond the bay mouth. Otherwise it was rock hopping, skills, rolling (coaches only) and even some more "double trouble" from Sam and John.
It's interesting to consider the responsibility taken on by those running these sessions. As a Consultant Anaesthetist I'm used to taking on huge responsibility. In turn I get well paid. I'm not sure that the responsibility running these sessions is any less. It seems a shame that it is so difficult to make a living as a kayaking coach.
