Some of the newer paddlers had a great opportunity to learn about the dragon boat paddling stroke from our experienced coach Keni.

Two full sessions in the morning and afternoon really took paddlers through their paces to make it a very satisfying day.

Low Wood No Wood 2016

A small crew of determined builders led by Eunice constructed the wonderful boat that was tested at the 2016 'Low Wood No Wood' cardboard boat regatta. In fine weather the boat was paddled to a good time in the figure of eight time trial.

The next challenge was attempting to recover lost treasure from an island while
'sea monsters' poured water upon them. In spite of a determined effort they eventually succumbed to an attack by rival teams.

Follow the 'Down and Ready' day paddlers rebuilt the floating pontoon and readied the boats. It was an opportunity for newer paddlers to learn how to handle the boats alongside more experienced team members as well as 'dressing' the boats with drum, seat and steering paddle.

Coffee Morning, 30th. January, 2016

Paddlers for Life Windermere started the year with their annual fund raiser coffee morning at Gaskell Hall, Silverdale. This event is primarily organised by Mags aided by enthusiastic members of Paddlers for Life and with the generous help and support of Silverdale residents.
After paying for the hire of the hall £1242:42 was raised for Paddlers for Life Windermere to continue their activities supporting people who have experienced cancer. Many thanks to everyone for their fantastic efforts. What a great achievement again!

With special thanks to Mags who organises this event so brilliantly.
