back to the power plant

We went back to the power plant to play in the current and this time we got some rolling practice . Also did some rescue and a self rescue. Its all very well to practice rolling in flat water but the real challenge is to do it in rougher and more dramatic water . Luckily for us we have a perfect spot and the water is warm as it comes from the cooling of the power plant. Nice in winter but much too hot in summer.

Kayak building report:

Plans arrived yesterday,I cut them out and began to paste them on the forms, next comes the cutting and threading them on the strongback. Meanwhile I can order the wood and begin to organise my workspace. From now on my car will have to park out in the open as its space is donated to kayak building
