10th Wet West Paddlefest – Sept 12/14th.
On the 12th, 13th and 14th of September, the Scottish Canoe Association Inland Committee will run its annual event, Wet West Paddlefest, in the Fort William area of Scotland for the 10th year in a row! We are proud to be a part of an event which is now a key part of the UK’s kayaking calendar.
If you aren’t already familiar with the event; there are 2 days of kayaking. One day is at the River Garry, a grade 3 run that almost all river kayakers can enjoy. The other day is on the River Moriston, a grade 4/5 for the more advanced kayakers. We easily average around 300 paddlers every year. This year we have made sure the event doesn’t clash with any other paddling festivals to ensure as many people as possible can make it.
At the parking for both of these rivers we have trade stands so manufacturers and shops, etc can show off their latest line of products and hopefully get people some new gear.
