After the massive U turn in plans for the weekend I did manage to get in the sea boat after all.
Predictably my offside roll has become my 'on' side.
On this side I am able to move the paddle freely through air, position it well and flick up.
It is like a very, very high brace.
On the other side I am still moving the paddle through water by the time I start the roll and it takes a little bit more ooomph.
It works, its maybe more like it would occur in 'conditions', but...
I would like another appointment.
As I write this I am aware that it could all change and probably will.
future coach rolls the Isel
'FC' tried out the Isel and put it through its paces.

Interesting to see what his first impressions were - he thought that it felt light and he liked the footplate.
Being in the market for a boat, it is all important to try out other folk's kayaks.
Trying the Isel out on a following sea can't be arranged in the pool though...
