Thanks for giving us such a nice review. We are looking at introducing more kayaks for next season, the only issue we have with this is trying to find the space to store them!

Great boats that are easy to sail. Quick orientation to boat and to wind and river conditions and you're off. Wonderful river with exciting city views. Take a picnic lunch to have on the foreshore when you are finished.
