Oops, forgot to write up last week. Regular Marple training, course set by Eloise, I concentrated on first few gates: across top of middle wave (turn on wave, easier than it looks, it's a flat top! Remember this, self!) out to down in eddy then back into flow for tight stagger. E did it with tail dips and tight turns, A did it with backwardses, I managed it a couple of times on sweeps and squiggly bow rudders, but not consistently. Small difference in angle and height getting on the wave determines how the whole rest of the gate sequence goes. Seriously, practice that, a lot, to get a feel for it in different waters. Will need for Wagon Lane.
