How embarrassing. A near perfect three gates, I thought I try some thing new (in this case I tried to follow Andy’s advice on how to ‘blunt’), I went over. Rolling up I seemed to hit my helmet with my hand and let go of my paddles. My hand rolling doesn’t exist so it was an OBE for me. How embarrassing. Thanks to the very nice lady and gent who helped return me and my boat to the bank.
Apart from that a good hour and a half session. It was obviously better at the beginning when the queue was only three people long rather than the twenty it grew too. Still everyone needs an audience when having an OBE.
I’ll have to go back over the weekend and practice more.
