We spent a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon with the Scholars and Staff from DCFC Academy. Usually more at home on the pitch, they impressed us with their paddling skills and enthusiasm. Some still have work to do with practising navigation (that was before they even got on the water) but they all found us eventually!
As you might expect from such a group of athletes, they made it back down the river in record time for a barbeque and home made cake.
We were all impressed by their enthusiasm, and their impeccable manners; they are a credit to their club, and we would be happy to welcome them back any time. They know where to find us now!
