Calling in at 6 well known kayak shops at strategic points around the UK the tour is designed to offer paddlers the chance to demo boats from both companies ranges as well as meet and chat to the designers and manufacturers behind them.
The promotional information states that:
Valley and Northshore have teamed up to offer the following dates when those interested can try each company’s range of kayaks. These dates are an opportunity to try kayaks from two of Britain’s best-known manufacturers and the talk with the people who actually design and produce these world-leading designs.
The events are free to attend, with complimentary refreshments and folks who register their participation with any of the various host shops will be entitled to a special promotional offer (no clues yet as to what this is).

I’m pleased to see local shop Bournemouth Canoes featured on the tour. I’d love to pop down, however, if all goes according to plan I’ll be paddling up in Anglesey that weekend. Hopefully, the day goes really well for all concerned.
