Dreaming about rolling.

At one end of the pool Donna and Jack were building up a solid foundation to rolling, thinking carefully about body and head movement, keeping it slow. Upside down and the wrong way round had proved challenging the week before, but Donna had done her homework - she had been dreaming about rolling, and it had worked!

Meanwhile at the other end of the pool Northern Kayaker tested rolling in her new helmet and... it worked with and without a paddle! Her shiny surf  boat in Orkney flag colours is just dazzling! Next week it is going up to Shetland in its stripy sock, hopeful of another northern adventure.

  1. I thought it was just me who dreamed about rolling? Try it next time you are on a Northlink ferry in a big swell!

    Shiny Boat (Rainbow Sprite) and I are indeed hopeful of adventure next week, I hope the wind and waves are kind!
