This year’s National Go Canoeing Week was a great success, with 57,674 miles clocked up around the nation. Every mile counts and we appreciate all distances logged but for those who register top mileage there are always some great prizes up for grabs. The winners this year were treated to some great prizes from Palm Equipment and Peak UK.
During National Go Canoeing Week we run a photograph competition for all those who register miles. This year’s winner was Fiona Shipp with a picture from her expedition around the Scottish Isles of Raasay and Rona. Fiona was delighted to have won a GoPro Hero action cam and was keen to share more about her paddling story and expedition.
