On Wednesday the 27th of April I headed back up to Anglesey for two days of 4 star sea leader training with Adventure Elements .
The first day we started working on leadership, rescues & towing as well as being shown how & why the sea flows & creates eddy currents in the way it does & how these affect the water around headlands.
The Other Students, Simone, Graham & Kayak Steve were great company & made both days enjoyable & a good laugh.
On the first day our instructor was James who thankfully explained things really well & gave me plenty of things to think about & work on not to mention a great explanation of why the tides run for longer than the standard 6 hours.
I did take my camera but forgot to pop the freshly charged batteries in it (LOL).
We paddled from Bull Bay on the North of the Island & followed the coast east on the ebbing tide to Porth Wen, returning on the flood.
It was I fab day but I was bloody freezing after the rescues we did in a tidal race...
A fab couple of days & really helps set me up for my Wales challenge, after which I hope to do the 4 star assessment though I'll probably do some more training first...
