"Messing about on the river" as the song goes!

They may find it easier and quicker to get along if they get in the boat rather than sitting on its side Looks to be a safe environment, though, for them to learn and not too much wind, either. I guess the boat with the reddish sail is a safety boat?

This takes me back a few years to when I was learning to sail but I would much prefer a boat with an engine now
The boys look to be having fun as they learn, I like the good strong colours in this, well seen and taken Frank.

A nice informal photo of the guys having fun, makes me wonder how they managed to overturn the dingy with minimal wind.

A very nice shot with lots going on, with everybody seemingly enjoying themselves, bright and colourful, just a pity the sun went in.
Like it loads , well spotted Frank.

Nice interesting shot I haven't been to Oil Lake for a very long time if I remember correctly its not very deep so they are not in to much danger
Thanks for sharing

Sorry Frank I had forgotten to comment on your photo. Well they certainly are messing about aren't they with the help of capsizing the boat. It doesn't look very deep as that guy is standing in the water helping the lad with the overturned boat. some nice bright colours on the sails with the yellow & white one & red one showing a reflection in the water. Isn't that just typical, of the sun to go in when you got there. well taken.

Thanks Helen but I think he is actually standing on the keel. He would need to be about 10 ft. tall to stand there. I think this was learners' day judging by what was going on generally, I was hoping to catch some wind surfers in competition. maybe another day.

0ops goes to show how much I know about boats Hope you catch the wind surfers competition sometime.

Lol - apologies for the late comment too but love everyones comments and agree it's a smashing candid Frank, with a slight twist to the usual subject matter of them normally just being *in* the boat instead of on it's side! - Would love to go sailing but don't think I could handle a canoe.. probably trying to get back up if it overturned would put me off !
