We had a very warm welcome and induction before heading off on to the water. The tuition was thorough but due to the lack of wind on the day we were limited in the scope of the experience. Nevertheless we had a great day.

Next school holidays we are running another camp, glad you enjoyed the knot and boat setup session. It was a great way to exhaust all of the instructors as well. We couldn't have asked for better weather either.
