Just wanted to send you a note re the 4 star canoe course. May I say many thanks for an interesting 4 Star Canoe course that surpassed my expectations. I had looked forward to coming along on the course and enjoying the ability to ask questions, learn and make a few mistakes along the way.

I confess that I did all of the above, yet following it I feel a greater sense of enthusiasm for progression than ever before. This is thanks largely to encouraging comments from you both about my current standard, I confess to having been a little disillusioned with my ability prior to the course thanks largely to my negative experiences to date as I mentioned to you.

While many of the areas we discussed during the weekend were know to me in some forms through my coaching exploits, I still feel I derived much benefit from the course and learned a good many approaches to the issues of leadership which I firmly believe will have far-reaching effects on not only on my leading ability but also my endeavours and skills as a coach.

I truly look forward to coming to do further courses with you. Please also pass on my sincere gratitude to your instructing partner who has given me outstanding guidance and many tips that I have eagerly written down and already started to act upon.

If I may also offer a word about Ffynnon wen, May I say what an outstanding facility you have chosen to work with. Truly an outstanding place with great staff with excellent accommodation and food that truly could not be bettered.

Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to them for there great care of us during the course, and if I may make so bold as to advice you to stick with them as you make a great partnership.

Thanks once again

Canoe coach
