Chilly Winter Training

It’s January and the team is divided, team Aberdeen (Leslie and Calum) are living it up on the White Nile, having the time of their lives in an African paradise and getting experience of high volume, warm weather paddling… Bliss!

For the rest of us however, the crunch is on with exams in full swing. Taking full days off to go boating would be great but living in the shadow of the library is proving too much for that amount of fun right now.

Making the most of the limited daylight, team members Campbell and Matt have been getting some early morning flat water sessions in before revision commences on their respective local canals of Glasgow and Nottingham.

The boys are preparing for the expedition by building up their fitness and dodging the floating rubbish, hopefully the Madagascan waterways will smell a bit better than our  stagnated UK Canals!
