I found myself going to Bedford over Christmas, so I took my old plastic C1 with me:
The idea was to turn up for the traditional Boxing Day roll. I first took part in this event over twenty years ago, as a member of Viking Kayak Club.
It's a simple matter of meeting up with a load of other paddlers and simultaneously performing an Eskimo roll at the appointed time.
It was good to see some old faces. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go along to the clubhouse afterwards since one of my kids was feeling unwell.
