A Bit of a Roll on the Northside

 

 Our kayak training moved from the river to the pool last night – not this pool – but one like it, over on the Northside.  ( I pinched this video from ‘John’ on YouTube.)   

Concern/Uganda buddy Vera Baker and I got a full hour of tuition from our friends at the Wild Water Kayak Club, in how to roll. 

Self-rescue will be important when we both head off to Kayak the source of the Nile in Uganda, this November, for Concern.  We need to ‘right ourselves’  when we take a tumble in rough water.  

The Wild Water Kayak Club came to my assistance later in the night when I needed another bit of self-rescue as I was driving home in  ‘blondie’ , my dad’s car…thanks Andy!
