River Dart presentations

After dinner, Graham Mackereth, owner and head designer at Pyranha has been pioneering British kayak design since the mid-70s, has an unrivalled collection of historical canoes and kayaks and an infectious interest in boat design and history.

Boat geeks of the UK, this is one not to be missed! Graham will be up 20:30 to 22:00 in the River Dart Country Park’s Ballroom.
