Kilchoan 2015: Planes, trains and automobiles. And a Frenchman in a van.

Post Christmas Party Reflections On Our First Nine Months

Hello all

A big thank you to those who came along on Friday night and supported the joint Battersea Canoe Club / Chelsea Kayak Club Christmas party. I certainly enjoyed myself very much and there was a very nice atmosphere. In addition to the standard fare of music, drink and food (more than we could eat, […]
