The men behind the scene
The Festival would not be able to operate without the men behind the scenes.
We are very lucky that, for each Festival, we get a dedicated team of men to help us run it. They make sure many jobs and tasks are done so we can concentrate on paddling only.
The team is made up of dedicated partners, husbands and friends.
What the men do:
Help organise the transport to locations in the morning and afternoon
Change the marquee setting from informal to formal meals by preparing chairs and tables
Help to carry boats around and load and unload on cars
They have done many useful things, e.g. pitching tents at 1am, waiting for AA to restart a broken car
After all the hard work is the reward of a day paddling together!
