Learning at Sandringham
January 2018 saw Dodgey take on a new set of skills in the form of Sea Kayaking. We signed up for a weekend session down at Sandringham with Rowan of East Coast Kayaking where we learnt basic skills such as navigation, deep water rescue from capsized kayaks, paddling into waves and how to keep together as a group. Important among those skills was being able to communicate between kayak members whilst on the water. This was a 2 day course where we learnt a lot about Kayaking and the adage "That it is better to be one the shore wishing that you were out on the water vs been out on the water wishing you were back on shore".
We also learnt about our friend "lee" and the not so friendly "fetch".
