Expedition Symposium

This weekend I was working at the Plas Y Brenin expedition symposium. A great event with a range of talks, workshops and lectures for people interested in expedition paddling. All disciplines of paddling were represented, white water, sea and open boat.

Really good lectures by the likes of Deb Piniger, Loel Collins and Olly Sanders provided plenty of ideas and inspiration for all those at the event.

I ran afternoon workshops on expedition boat repairs which involved people having a go at repairing a range of different boats using a vareity of materials and solutions.

It was nice to see some familiar faces and have a chat over a few beers in the bar on the Saturday night.

Cheers to Pete for organising a really good weekend.

We have just returned from the 2008 Canoexpo in Coventry. A great weeknd where we got to catch up with a lot of old faces and meet some new ones. Loads of people came over for a chat and we hope to see some of you on the water in 2008.
A big thanks to brook bank for organsing the event which seemed really succesfull and I hope it will run again next year.
Thanks to everyone who came and had a chat with us about our courses, expeditions, repairs and for a general chin wag.
