Boys undertake kayak training

Boys undertake kayak training
Michael, Mark, David and Andrew.
Thursday 10th March 2011 by C. Freeman

Four students from Year 10 were presented with certificates after taking part in a kayak training course at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough.

Michael Navarro-Marin, David McInnes, Mark Wayman and Andrew Elliott undertook the ‘Canoe England’ Paddlesport Performance course with other members of Geddington Youth Club.

They were taught the basics of kayaking; from how to lift, carry and launch the craft, through to paddling, steering and how to disembark. It was a six-hour introduction to the sport and the boys each received their one-star certificates from Miss Stringer during a recent assembly.

David said: ‘We had to learn to steer to keep the boat straight and get out onto lots of different surfaces and how to negotiate obstacles.'
