New date April 2013. Apologies to those who were looking forward to the challenge.

2nd Lesson

Well, that wasn't too bad tonight, felt more at one with the canoe, got alot of priceless advice from members of the club and Keith is going to put a mention of the challenge and the charity on their web site.

Im going to go twice a week now as I need to get some hours in the canoe, as eight to ten hours canoeing a day is going to take some preparation for.

I learnt tonight that quite a few people fail this challenge with sprained wrists and pulled tendons and muscles, not good as my back and left wrist have been causing me  pain lately,  though thats more work related.
