Do I really need to do much kayaking and canoeing?
Sunday 12th May 2013
Truth be known, we are becoming increasingly concerned about the level of competence of some participants at GODZone on the water sections. New Zealand has lots of exciting and demanding water to explore and we want to make the most of it. However, we require all participants to have the requisite skills to cope and make good decisions based on experience and learning. Some teams at Chapter 2 didn’t look like they’d held a Canadian bladed paddle before which is not good enough. We recommend that your training for the water sections is focused on dealing with skills rather than fitness and that you take it seriously.
