Four Star Leaders

Shetland Canoe Club coaches Ian Cummings, Arthur Robertson and Angus Nicol all achieved their new 4-Star Leadership Awards. Well done to them all and thanks to the “guinea pigs”they accompanied on the assessment trips, Yolande, Katrina and Deborah, and to theĀ  the trainers/assessors Roy Henderson and Martin Rickard.

The assessment trips took some spectacular coastline, from Nibon to the Drongs off Eshaness and the second day took in the ever-amazing coast of Muckle Roe. Both trips took place in relatively challenging conditions and the club leaders were asked to perform rescue manoeuvres and safety exercises in awkward condtions to justify the title of a 4-Star Leader.
