2010 02 28 - White Water 3 star assessment

This was a two day course, run by Darren Joy (Fluid Skills).

Day1: spent the first hour on the lake so Darren could see our level. Then moved up to the school rapids, the lower section of the Loop, starting at the Anvil rapid. The water level was high so the water was rushing at a considerable speed. Practised ferry gliding and breaking and out. Had lunch then did the lower Dart, shooting the Buckfastleigh weir and finishing just below for the day.

Day2: Paddled the Loop top to bottom, finishing at River Dart County Park. Good descent and even managed to extract a canoe wrapped around a rock along the way.
