Training Report [67]

By David Hipsley

Congratulation to Henry Van der Kolk, Elizabeth Thomson, Greg Murray and David Hipsley on gaining their Flatwater Instructor’s qualification. On behalf of the group we would like to thank Mike Eggleton and NSW Canoeing for their efforts and inspiration during this time. We hope many of our new members gained from this experience and are now enjoying time on the water. Thanks also to Stuart Trueman and Australian Canoeing for carrying out the assessments.

The following people have all gained their Sea Skills qualification: William Thompson, Rowan Sinden, Paul Schramm, Bruce McNaughton, Paul Mower, Mark Anderson, Mark Clarkson.

A sea leader’s course was held during the weekend 5-6 May at Bundeena and run by Harry Havu, Rob Mercer and Andrew Eddy. The course was attended by Robert Hollows, Mark Alchin, Joanne Alchin, Greg Murray, Mark Schroeder, Matt Bezzina, Owen Kimberley and Terence Uren. We hope they are all inspired to qualify in the next few months, so they can help out with the heavy demand for trips.

If you have any training suggestions please let me know so I can pass them on to the training team.
