Rolling (lack of) progress

Well, the paddle float rolls are stronger on both sides today, but the no-paddle-float attempts failed miserably. I broke the footbrace in the new boat, and banged up the top of my foot in the process. The Spring Run seems a little easier to roll than the Cape Charles, but not all that much. I invested in a dive mask and that is really nice, I can look up and see how the setup is. Even after getting confused, I was able to re-setup and roll up. And, no sore shoulders either!

I think taking a class now would really benefit me, as I have the basic idea. If I cant get into one next weekend, I may hold off a week. Kind of frustrating, I feel so close but so far...
