Chippenham Sailing and Canoeing Club have now taken delivery of a beautiful blue katakanu and are waiting for the sign-writer to inscribe it “Flying Starfish”. Julia Mannering, club treasurer and young persons’ officer, is delighted with the new vessel and is hoping to organise some paddle painting sessions with the children at Calder House School. This will involve lots of brightly coloured paint, stickers, glue and varnish and very little in the way of artistic direction we are told! Sounds like great fun.
This is a picture of an identical boat. As soon as we have pictures of “Flying Starfish” we will let you have a look, hopefully in action!
