    Kendal Mountain Festival

    Palm & Pyranha Paddlesports Session, Saturday 17th November 11.30 a.m to 1.30 p.m. Kendal Leisure Centre

    This looks like it could be a real gem! They are re-vamping Paddlesports at Kendal with the best line-up ever and a stellar cast gathers together in the largest venue in Kendal for this all new Specialist Session.
    Of special interest to S.O.P members,
    Colin Skeath
    will share his adventures of his record breaking open canoe circumnavigation of Britain last year.

    Guest presenters for this incredible session will be top expedition sea kayaker, Erin Bastian and former pro Kayaker, river-runner, raft guide and top swimmer – Colin Hill.
    From the world of Playboating (Freestyle Kayaking), huge river expeditions, big fall drops and competition kayaking we're delighted to welcome three of the world's top kayakers today – Bren Orton, Dane Jackson and Nouria Newman. Get ready to see some incredible footage that will leave you astounded at their accomplishments and we're sure will be the talk of the Fest.

    Joining us on-stage are two of the world's greatest adventurers and top paddlers in their own right - Sarah McNair-Landry & Erik Boomer. Former Nat Geo Adventurers of the year they join us to talk about their latest expeditions including their award-winning film last year - 'Into Twin Galaxies' across Greenland.

    Finally, we can't ignore the important plight of many environmental activists today who fight for a pollution free environment we all love. Paddlesports activists definitely lead the way on this front and we'll share successes with four inspirational people – Kayakers Rok Rozman and Carmen Kuntz (Balkans River defence) and Dan Yates (Save Our Rivers / The Free Rivers Fund) and Stand Up Paddleboarder – Cal Major (Paddle Against Plastic).

    Presented by Palm Equipment and Pyranha Kayaks and supported by Dewerstone clothing and British Canoeing.


    Tickets are 15 from the Kendal Mountain Festival website. (likely to sell out so don't delay)
    I am back from a highly enjoyable paddling trip to Nepal - just in time and looking forward to this! So hope to see you there on Saturday if you can make it.
    Happy paddling, Slime.
