County Watersports Day

Another successful day organised by Mavis Waters, Outdoor Activities Adviser, to give Leaders the opportunity to arrange an event that encourages Guides to try an adventurous, water based activity.

Four Guide Units from GMW took part in the Watersports Taster Event at the Helly Hansen Watersports Centre at Salford Quays. The sessions gave the girls the opportunity to try a number of different watersports including kayaking, canoeing and bellboating.

The weather was perfect for it and after getting into the tight wetsuits and having a safety briefing, the first group ventured out to try kayaking and canoeing. By the end of the session most girls had ended up in the water and were very grateful of the hot showers provided by the centre. The afternoon session was bellboating, however, much to everyone's surprise, they did not stay dry and ended up in the water too!

The day had a great response from the girls who thought it was a challenging, fun and exciting experience that was over far too quickly!
