A couple of years ago I was asked to be a scout leader then asked ‘would I like to train as a coach to take scouts out in kayaks and canoes?’ Since then I’ve completed level two coach in kayaks , paddled the Suffolk Stour from Sudbury to the sea, the Wye, the Dart in both canoe and kayak, been out with the open canoe association in various locations, and taken part in the once a year river Blackwater paddle. I’ve attempted sea kayaking off Felixstowe but plan to try warmer climes to progress towards 3* sea kayak in the near future.

Since becoming an coach I have been helping out with the Wednesday section as well as helping to run one and two star courses for the scouts.

This year I intend to complete my 3* open canoe and L2 coaching for opens and get more moving water and sea kayaking experience.
