701487_sThe group left from Horgabost beach with a SW wind and on the last hour of the ebb tide and  after a bumpy crossing over Luskentyre bay, we paddled around the headland of  701489_s

Bienn Dubh and onwards to the Island of Easay.   All of the group coped well with the following wind and the small swell that was coming from the SW and the group are looking forward to the possibility of an extended 701490_sovernight expedition on their next trip.

As an athlete mentor for the

Sky Spo839317_srts- Living for Sport Project, he delivered a motivational presentation at a whole school assembly talking of his long athletic journey from his first ever medal success as a 7 year old boy to him winning Gold at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002.  His 839319_sspeech was entertaining,  insightful and focused on how ‘we can all achieve our best’.

Afterwards, Steve demonstrated his Gymnastic skills with a selection of vaults including a dive 839320_s839323_sforward somersault over 2 pupils and Mr Nicolson!
