Bollington Pool - 6th November 2009

1/2 hour pool session, practicing rolls - L and R, passing paddle over up-turned boat before rolling, falling in on the move etc. Was coached by a MADCC paddler - my normal "screw" roll with layback finish may not be so suitable nowadays with modern playboats - was told to start my hip flick earlier and come up with the paddle more at right angles to the boat rather than continuing the sweep backwards. Tried this a few times, but difficult to teach an old dog...
