Paddle Fest 2016 at Anchorvale CC

Look at Boon Kang’s smile, he had so much fun at PA Paddle Fest!
Tiring too, but a sense of achievement.

We had signed up for PA PaddleFest at Anchorvale CC, I thought it would be cool to expose kids to kayaking, and at a neighbourhood river.

There are up to 20 other kayaks in our group expedition, most are newbies.

Boon Kang went with me on the expedition (about 1.5 hours including rest), Boon Yee and Xin went for the tryouts (30 to 45 minutes)

It was a novelty for us to paddle under the bridge (TPE expressway) or so close to the mangroves.
I have always wanted to bring the kids kayaking in MacRitchie or any other reservoirs, so glad I could join them!

If we have more time, Kang and me might even row up to Punggol Waterway point or Punggol Dam 🙂

Everyone seem to be very shy, but our clothes are always soaked from non-stop splashing haha :p
