We just kicked off our season of paddling with an unforgettable Canoe Try-it event. The event was hosted for the amazing students of DEVI International Boarding School at our very own clubhouse on the picturesque Mersey River. Led by our Certified Instructor, Dave Lewis (our Chair), the students got an exclusive chance to try canoeing for the very first time and they absolutely loved it!
The afternoon was filled with laughter, cheers and lots of learning as they paddled along the tranquil waters, taking in the stunning views around them. It was amazing to see so many young students joining us for a unique experience and discovering the joys of canoeing.
Now, as the summer break quickly approaches, the students are eagerly planning one last canoeing excursion before they head back home. We can't wait to see the next group of students on the water on June 11th for another amazing adventure with us.
Thank you, DEVI International Boarding School, for choosing us as your go-to destination for unforgettable memories and thrilling water sports. Here's to more exciting moments on the water!
