Spend a lovely evening on the water exploring the Glenmore Reservoir. Visit the shoreline or head to the Weaselhead area to observe wildlife. Generally have a nice evening out. We'll have the boats on the water at 6pm and be off the water by 8pm. Beginners are welcome. There is no formal lesson, but will be assisted and accompanied until comfortable. We might have a apres social after the event TBC. I am usually wearing a red cap.
