    Had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect, the staff at Edge were friendly, efficient and careful in ensuring our safety and knowledge on the water and surprisingly I am not aching this morning. Thanks for organising this event Gary.

    Hi Guys, please do update your RSVP if you can no longer attend as there are quite a few people looking for a last minute spot - thanks and see you tomorrow

  • Elsie

    Hi Guys, Gary has sent those on the RSVP list an email with final instructions for Friday. Please check that you have received this. Please note that you will need to arrive at the venue before 6.30pm and you should be changed in the clothes you intend to kayak in (so no business attire). The kayaking will start at 6.30pm so do give yourself plenty of time so you don't miss out.

    We will go to a pub after for some drinks.

    Look forward to meeting you.
