In July I went over to ...

In July I went over to Canada and the Adirondacks. Part of the trip was to discover more about my pair of old Canadian Canoes,; a 1909 'ish Peterborough and a 1950 'ish Chestnut cedar canvas. You can see what I learnt here:- http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk/forum/showthread.php/52300-In-Search-of-Heritage

AGM-2016

Canoefest 2016 @ Ross-on-Wye was first and foremost a celebration of 60 years of the Open Canoe Association... but as ever, we also held our Annual General Meeting to report on the past year, update our Constitution and Mission Statement, present volunteer recognition awards and elected a new Committee.

C-Boat Rolling Clinic, BBQ and Boating @ The Washburn

Following a Rolling Clinic @ Dewsbury Pool, a host of us headed to The Washburn for a C-Boating BBQ and play-day. The turnout was great.  Roll on a time when we just expect to see a dozen canoes lined up side-by-side at ANY Washburn release!
