One star assessments

Tonight was the culmination of the beginners course on Shadwell Basin, as this was the first assessment I have done, I was anxious to set the correct standard and not quite sure what that should be.

Luckily, I had a more experienced coach working with me which was very helpful as we were able to discuss the students' standards together. Of course, the one star award is all about encouragement rather than a strict technical appraisal but it is still helpful to get input from other coaches on assessment standards in general. Happily, everyone passed!
