He and Jim Kennedy tried to marshall an unweildy group of 31 kayakers.
It was far too many to actually be coached, but they delivered some top tips. Best of all was to watch them paddle, only to later learn this is only the fourth time Shaun has paddled a sea kayak.
I shot some video on the water which really shows Shaun's style, but I've spent forty muinutes trying to get it onto YouTube, but each time it has failed.
It will have to wait. I'm off to hear all about Whales and Dolphins with Robin Ruddock
