Its been a few weeks since my last blog and in that time I have done another store visit to promote yorkshire day and promote kayaking to families again. It proved very successful with my local canoe club having many new faces join in on its weekly pool sessions which help younger paddlers to become accustom to the world of paddling. As well as this I have recently moved to Kettering Northamptonshire which is throwing up its own problems in finding somewhere to train which proves difficult when most places are restricted such as lakes and access to rivers.
I feel that access to sport should be made far easier now with the recent success of british olympians but this doesn’t seem to happen as far as land owners and exclusive sports clubs are concerned. Does anybody out there have any opinions on this or ideas of how we can get around this as aspiring british sportsmen and women?
Also if anyone that’s reading my blog knows of somewhere near Kettering in which I can train on a river/canal or even a lake any knowledge of this would be greatly appreciated.
