24 October, 2014 - 26 October, 2014FREE
Join in the fun, and get along to the Festival of Paddlesport â€“ aÂ celebration of the many things to do on rivers, lochs andÂ seas. Thereâ€™ll be talks and workshops on all topics, from how to get started to tales of great journeys. It’s set in two venues this year â€“ the Perth Dewars Centre and also the Leisure Pool. And it’s a free event.
If youâ€™ve never paddled before then Come and Try in theÂ pool (bring your swimwear), where you can also watch exciting canoe polo matches and displays of paddling tricks. There’s aÂ large exhibition hall packed with kit from a wide range of specialist retailers, and expert providers to teach you the skills or take you on a dream trip.
Watch out for the sister event â€“ the Tay Descent â€“ on the 25th October, so get yourself along there too and cheer from the river banks as theÂ participantsÂ cross the finish line.
