Last night I rushed to the pool at 8:30PM (pool session had started at 8:00PM and I had to wait for Kate to come home from the middle school open house). Almost forgot my paddle on the way and had to double back to pull it out of the garage. Got there around 9:00PM -- in time for about an hour of practice. Pool was filled with the University Kayak Club members. Paid my $5 and got some nice comments about my boat (yeah -- traditional skin-on-frame qajaqs are a real chick magnet!) I've forgotten how pleasant rolling in a pool is -- clean, warm, bright water. I felt like I could slow down, open my eyes and concentrate on my technique. On the other hand there isn't a lot of room so once in a while I'm hitting the side of the pool with my bow. Also the chlorinated water is nasty on my eyes so I wear goggles. I brought a wetsuit and akuilisaq but it leaked quite a bit (probably through the sleeves) and I had to empty my boat out several times. Next time I'll wear my tuiliq. Also I couldn't hit my handroll -- that tuiliq provides me with much better floation for doing the difficult stuff. Jonathan (the kayak club president?) said to come any time, bring friends. He got a call recently from a sea kayak group on the pennisula (anyone I know?) and they were interested in having practice there too. He said if that happens there could be a problem with too many sea kayaks in the water in the future.
