So, how much fun can it be to spend a significant part of a weekend immersed upside down in water?
Actually, quite a lot! I spent last weekend at Glenmore Lodge, Scotland's National Outdoor Training Centre on a kayak rolling course. Along with lots of time in the pool, there was video analysis and land based training.
Lots of skills and techniques to learn in a great environment. Glenmore Lodge has an enviable and well-deserved reputation for the quality of instruction, staff and facilities and in all respects lived up to the reputation. Along with great facilities, the accommodation and food were superb - the afternoon cake being a highlight!
