Learning kayaking skills at Kirkwall pool

On 3rd Dec we went to the pool to learn some of the kayaking skills Inuit hunters would have to use in the Arctic. At least we were in warm water!

Learning to climb on and control our craft.

We had fun going over and under the 'ice floes!'

Learning to capsize was a bit nerve racking - but we did it!

Steering and spinning
Touching base.
Watch a video of us hunting our prey, racing to the finish - and capsizing!
