After food and a drink we were back on the water doing 500m time trials - some tested a variety of boats and paddles to try to find the best kit for the fastest time.
The day finished with a 1 or 2 km time trial. The aim of the time trials is to set a personal time so you can judge your future progress. The 500m time is also used to select the entry division in marathon races.
A special thanks to the helpers for safety cover, sorting kit and especially putting everything away at the end of the day.
Next marathon 22nd Sept. Lancaster canal.
