Well, the swans have been put away to hibernate for the winter and we have drawn the curtain on another incredible summer out on the water…
This year was our second summer here in our Boathouse at Rushden Lakes, and its been our busiest year yet with so many new folks joining us out on the lake. We’ve been blessed with some wonderful weather this year, and that seems to have inspired even more people to venture in and pick up a paddle for the first time.
Its also been a year of new developments for us here at Canoe2 as we launched a number of new projects and products as well. The Shepherds Hut at Barnwell for one, has been a very popular addition to our range of comfy camping and overnight accommodation options and its also been really exciting to see lots of folks getting their official canoeing qualifications out on the lake as well through our new line of tuition and classes which launched this year.
All told its been another incredibly exciting year!
All of that came to a great climax on Sunday as we hosted the first annual Splash and Dash event with Spurgeons here at Rushden Lakes. It was wonderful so see so many teams competing and raising money for a wonderful cause. The team from Anytime Fitness in Rushden wound up victorious in the final, beating out some stiff competition from the guys at Beat Route Radio who were kind enough to join us on commentating and musical duties throughout the day as well.
While the season for hire may be over, there are still plenty of great reasons to come in and see at the Boathouse shop. Our sale on Canoes and Kayaks continue with some amazing deals on brand new craft, as well as a selection of ex-hire canoes (info & pricing can be found here) and we also have loads of great products for canoeing / outdoors that might come in perfect for a certain large end of year festival event which, frankly its too early to even type the name of yet!
In the meantime, thank you again to everyone who has joined us and hit the water this year - we can’t wait to welcome you back next season!
