4 star leader training - North Wales
The last day of a private 1:1 4 star leader training, and some rough water was found at Pen Ryn Mawr. Focus to day was on personal skills and reading water effectively. We did some eddy turns in the middle channel and ferry glides then a paddle out into the main flow working with the rough water. A couple of goes at surfing the boat and then a roll in the back end of the flow. Unfortunately this was unsuccessful and so I paddle float self rescue was then needed. We then headed off for a coffee and some detailed action planning, pulling the last 4 days into a way forward.
