October 2014 Newsletter
Learning is not a race for information, it's a walk of discovery (anknown)
September has gone out in a rush, with relatively few sunny days.
Fortunately, at least on the Lago Maggiore, the sun obliged for the weekend… and four days paddling around Palmaria Island and Cinque Terre were perfectly amazing and relaxing!
To compensate, October promises to be awash with exciting fun events!
I have been invited to the ninth edition of the “Jornadas Menorca en kayak 2014” to hold a BCU 3-star course as well as to deliver a talk called “Paddling the Mediterranean”, in an evening dedicated to kayaking at the Mahon auditorium. I’m so happy to be returning to Minorca, after paddling there in winter with Mauro and as a first-time instructor at the 2011 Jornadas. Of course I can’t wait to meet up once again with all the friends I’ve made!
I won’t be able to hang around much on this most beautiful Balearic
island as there loads of
BCU 3-star courses
planned this autumn:
Furthermore, from the 24 to the 27, a second session (followed by
final assessments) for the FICK (Federazione Italiana Canoa Kayak)
level 2 sea kayak
will be held at the Lega Navale Arenella in Palermo.
Finally, I have been involved, for some time now, in the training to become a BCU Level 3 Coach. The sessions have been progressing quite well, with a close-knit group of paddlers who are motivated to carry out the most demanding of exercises. The scratch marks on arms and legs subsequent to assisted rescues are a reminder of how much still remains to be learnt…
Call of the
Matteo Della Bordella,
Silvan Schupbach and Christian Ledergerber
have completed a unique expedition that included paddling and
climbing. They started off from the village of Ittoqotoormiit,
situated on Greenland’s east coast, paddled for more than 200
kilometers and once they made base camp, climbed up the granite
vertical face of the Shark's Tooth.
It will be most interesting to hear what they have to say about Scorebysund!
Thanks to Albert Gambina, we finally have a Newsletter written in English.
