sunset is a sunrise in reverse

Its the weekend again and off to a great start with a skills lesson on Thursday evening.
The lesson was on turning with stern rudders and bow rudders, both good techniques to get to know.

The Channel of Death was cooperating nicely, not too aggressive, but just right for beginners to play in

As the sun went down we played among the rocks practicing those tight turns .

Here you can see how tight the turn needs to be in order not to get stuck on the rock, you also need to be quick enough to get out before the surge sucks all the water out leaving you in the channel of water between the rocks.

What a great way to end the working week, an evening paddle as the sun goes down is good for the soul.
