W.I Paddle Boarding Adventures!

The "Paddle Boarding Experience " was advertised in the Dorset W.I News, for keen members from the  Dorset W.I to take part. So, Celia from the committee rallied round,  to find keen volunteers. On the morning of the 11/07/18, eight willing and able W.I members ( with two guests Frances and Claire) set off to the Weymouth & Portland Sailing Centre , for the " Paddle Boarding Experience".
On arrival we were given wet suits, and after lots of "grunts and groans", we were squeezed into our individual suits. Outside we put on our buoyancy aids and collected our oars, and paddle boards.

Once in the water and on our boards, we were  given instructions and off we went following the teacher. Lesley's husband Mark was positioned closely in his inflatable,  ready to take photos.

Unfortunately, for Mark he was bashed into quite often by some of the group , not competent enough in steering. Some of the group were skilled enough to stand and paddle their boards. After over an hour paddling in the marina, we returned ashore. Once ashore we hurriedly took off our buoyancy aids and rushed into the sea to cool off. Then we showered and changed, returned our wet suits and went off to lunch.

After lunch some of us stayed behind to support the remaining two (Celia & Claire) have their paddle boarding experience. Fortunately, with the warm sun and the refreshing sea breeze, watching the afternoon paddle boarding  was a relaxing experience.

As the paddle boarding was such great fun, it may be repeated in September, hoping others are able to take part.
