Ahead of this winter's White Water season, Team GB 2017 Freestyler Becca Skirrow, of Doncaster-based Kool Kayakers, arranged for Lowri Davies and Chris Brain to run a White Water Safety & Rescue Training weekend on the River Tees...
another great weekend on the Tees [...] thankyou to all involved for organising [and to] Lowri and Chris for the course...– Wayne Beck
In the finest tradition of club kayaking, a fun weekend revolved around merriment and silliness in a riverside bunkhouse...
The two days were action packed, and both used training venues around Low Force and beside the bunkhouse on the adjacent River Tees.
Whilst the youngsters were training, others from the club took advantage of rainfall from Storm Brian to get out on the white water further downstream.
We're working to ensure weekends like these become a regular feature of the Regional calendar– Greg Spencer - Yorkshire & Humberside Region
David McDonnell of Kool Kayakers secured funding from Cash4Clubs to make the training weekend possible. With that sorted, Becca Skirrow worked her magic to get a plan together. In the finest of club traditions, a host of others then pitched in to make the plan work :)
