Six intrepid Banff canoeists have gained their two-star awards following an assessment evening in Portsoy. The testing took place in and around Portsoy harbour, and the paddlers were tested on their paddling skills, capsizing and rescues. Swimming in the cold water of the harbour was worth it in the end as everyone passed. The experience gained during club paddles every Thursday evening certainly proved worthwhile.
