The first day I wondered what on earth (or water!) I had got myself into as it was strenuous and confusing!
However, by the end of the course I had found a new love.
Most interestingly, as in life in general, it was not so much the learning of new skills but the challenges that arose and the character traits these brought out that produced some wonderful insights into my life.
I found a previously very much submerged competitive streak during our final afternoon races! I am also much more aware of how much I like working as a team member and yet have the capacity and willingness to 'take the helm' and give directions too.
All in all I feel I have had a life enhancing experience which has changed my attitude to how I will approach situations in future.
