Silver D of E Canoeing Practice Expedition

This weekend marked the first Silver Duke of Edinburgh expedition by Canadian Canoe for the 34th.

The group of 7 started at Trent Lock, spent their first evening at Holme Pierrepont, their second evening at Farndon and finished at North Muskham.

The expedition ran very smoothly and the group worked well as a team. As the weekend progressed the team became more confident and the skill level improved.

The group are hopefully looking forward to their qualifying expedition on the River Wye in the summer.

A selection of photos are shown below. I particularly like the photo of 6 members of the group carrying one boat – part of a record attempt for the slowest portage ever.
