Another large group start at the pond

»«Monday 19th April 2010

This year's pond group ventured out for the first time in wonderful sunshine and a light breeze.  It was a fantastic start for all 16 new entrants who all greeted the chance to be on the water with optimiism and smiles.

The smooth transition to the water was co-ordinated under the watchful eye of pond trainer Phil Aspinall and supported by older Otters Alison Aspinall and Albert Waples and as you can see those parents not helping with the rigging, sailing or safety boats were busy snapping the beaming smiles of the youngsters.

Scroll down the photos and you'll notice two consistent themes smiles and sunshine.....and well-fitting bouyancy aids everywhere.
