The All Essential Theory Day

Helmets, harnesses and ropes ready we have started the morning session with a couple of knots and bolts on the rope course. After couple of hiccups on the “Number 9s” and some pretty twisted double 8s we have finally succeeded the all important Double 8 knot!! We have all worked together at setting up the rope course for the afternoon session with a near miss of losing the tracer in the wind (mind you one of the first instruction we have received today was “not to lose the tracer”). Phew….

Our afternoon session was slightly drier and wind free with Cilian about leadership skills and games thrown into the mix. The team managed to deliver the “Helium” stick safely to the ground while fighting our way out of handcuffs. We have all set our goals for the remaining weeks of the course trying to be realistic as well as attainable.
I’m off for a bit of swim to cure this knee I will definitely need for the next couple of weeks.
