After the lovely balmy weather we had at the start of last week the weekend was a bit overcast and blowy. That didn’t stop the Highland Canoe Polo group getting out onto Loch Achilty, near Contin for their first outdoor match of the year. It looked great fun, if a bit chaotic at times!
For the uninitiated (like me) canoe polo is played by two teams of five players on any piece of flat water large enough to take a pitch with the aim being to score goals in nets suspended a couple of metres above the water.
Loch Achilty is also great for more sedate forms of paddling….although some sea kayakers out at the same time as the match eventually joined in!
