Peter Walker, the father of Alex in the Junior Men's group, managed a BMW partnership with Mark Hunter leading up to the Olympics, so Mark kindly agreed to come down and coach the group last Sunday. Mark turned up promptly at 8 a.m. and started off by demonstrating how sculling should be done to the whole group. He then went out sculling with the top end of the J16 group in doubles, with the boys rotating around during the outing. By the end of the outing all five of the boys had had an individual coaching session from Mark and had various points to work on. Hopefully Mark will come back sometime to check on progress.
