This week Gwilym has been leading a group of 9 instructors who have been working with 42 Apprentices for Bridgwater and Taunton College. They started the week with some team building and planning before being sent out and about Mountain Biking at Haldon Hill, Paddling on the Taunton Canal and a 2 day on Expedition on Exmoor
Today Gwilym has been at Bridgwater YMCA running a British Canoeing Foundation Safety and Rescue for some of the staff there. What a day, warm water and super hot so no need to wear wetsuits which makes a nice change.
This week Gwilym has spent a morning looking at options for abseiling from a building, an afternoon of Low Ropes assessments and some staff training in canoes and kayaks on the canal.
Whilst Olly was out working on Dartmoor, Gwilym was not far away working on The River Dart coaching some white water skills. Kate, Hannah and Jo were the clients with Robin observing me work. It was a little low but they still managed to look at loads of skills and find rapids to coach on.
Well done to Jo who passed her 3 Star assessment today and thanks to Robin (who was observing Gwilym running 3 Star assessments) for taking a swim or two for the rescue drills.
