It feels like spring is offically here, lots of nice sunny weather and great conditions on the sea around Anglesey. March has been really busy, the nice weather gets everybody outside. We started off with a few days advanced coaching with Jamie and Matt looking at advanced boat handling skills, we had great force 4-5 conditions at Rhoscolyn for the guys to get stuck into. We have also had 5 days working with Grant and some of his staff at Anglesey Adventures looking at 3 star skills and then 4 star leadership training. Beautiful weather for the whole 5 days with the wind barely blowing above a 3 all week, fantastic paddling conditions but unfortunately not so great for teaching leadership in rougher water.
Quite a few private courses in March aswell with a couple of groups spending some time brushing up on rescues and incident managment. Nice sunny days but the sea is still very cold. Also a fantastic paddle out to Ynys Dulas with Matt on a private course, the seals were on good form getting really close to our boats.
Myself and Phil Clegg have just finished running a 2 star and 3 star training weekend for a group of adventure racers. Really great crowd with a fantastic wind over tide surf session on Sunday morining in the menai straits.
Just getting ready to get on the water again, another great forecast, light winds and sunny skies. The group have planned an afternoon trip out to the skerries, fantastic.
Having trouble uploading photos at the moment but will get some images up as soon as possible.
