Nelson put on its best face for our Coastguard training session at the weekend. More than 20 club members turned up to hear how to safely rig our waka for towing in an emergency ( not as simple as it might first seem and if you get it wrong you are likely to end up with a two piece waka).
Thanks to Sean Timoney for making the arrangements and to the Nelson Coastguard for sharing their wisdom.
Its never too early or too late to start paddling waka ama
