Morning session: break down of a 150y shoreline mark across two points of land.
A. Use the first point as the start line and run a shoreline single over the second point. I needed to give Laddie a cast to prevent him from going around the point, and he needed some handling to stay in the water at the end. No vocalizing. Required to swim all the way back to the original start line and over both points rather than running back on land.
B. Run the shoreline single from a start line well to the inside of the original start line, making it more obvious that the line to the mark was over the points. Laddie still attempted to swim around the points but responded easily to single casts up onto the points, and did not need handling at the end. No vocalizing. Again required to swim all the way back and over the points rather than running back on land.
C. Run the complete double, with the go-bird a short mark on land to the side of the pond. After retrieving the go-bird, Laddie once again tried to swim around each of the points on the shoreline mark, and once again responded easily to handling up onto the points, but vocalized on the second one. Did not need to be handled at the end. Again required to swim all the way back and over the points rather than running back on land.
