Whitewater Beginners Intro Jan 2022

5 members had a beginners intro to white water session on the River Eden in January with Sean McGrath from Wild River.

The day started with assessing how well each member fitted into their boats, adjusting foam, foot plates and back rests. We then got on the river and then started to work on how we felt on the water.

The group was quite mixed with beginner, intermediate and advanced members. The beginner and intermediate members were mainly working on building their confidence on moving water and learning how to read the river. The advanced members were mainly getting used to being on a river again after a while off due to covid.

All members developed their skills working as a team to enjoy a day on the rapids and had a great time! Even beginner members said they enjoyed themselves much more than expected. A big thanks to Sean McGrath.
