Obviously, what the world needs most is more of me; talking, talking, talking, especially about myself. With this in mind, I’ll be doing a talk at the South West Canoe Show in Exeter this coming Saturday. If you’re not familiar with this annual event, it takes place at and around AS Watersports and is a great start to the winter whitewater paddling season, although the numerous stands and talks cater for all kinds of paddling. More info at the event website.
My talk is called ‘Expeditions for Mere Mortals’. It won’t be saltwater based, but instead will focus on the intermediate level whitewater paddling trips I’ve organised in the past few years with my chums; to Morocco, India and California. I kick off at 3.30 pm in the Exeter Canoe Club clubhouse, close to the AS Watersports shop. See the link above for more details.
If the notion of Yours Truly rambling on about WW paddling does not appeal much, you may wish to know that the event line-up also includes a couple of sea paddling talks, including one by Jeff Allen.
I hope you can make it! If you can’t attend my talk and are (improbably) absolutely devastated, note that I should be doing something similar at the Scottish Canoe Exhibition, later in October.
