04/06/11 BKC Outdoor Pool Session

One of the purposes of this blog for me is to try to keep an exact record of all the paddling I do.  Consequently, this entry is purely to record that I went to the Belfast Kayak Club Outdoor Pool session at Millisle Lagoon on a bright but blustery Saturday morning.  There are no photos but I had a good session practicing basic skills in my Jefe Grande.

One point of interest was that as this was the first session I’ve been to with BKC I hadn’t realised the wide variety of members of the club.  There were a few families and a high proportion of female paddlers.  It is an acknowledgement of my ignorance but the mental cliché I had of all kayakers being young thrusting athletic chaps and crusty old sea dogs, almost exclusively male, was just plain wrong!  I like it when I’m wrong and the World displays a better state of affairs than that I’d expected 🙂
