We made the most of our vacation in the UK and our short time in Cornwall to join the wonderful group of paddlers from The Ocean Sports Centre, the host of the UK Celtic Cup in Carbis Bay in Cornwall UK. I was immediately drawn into the beautiful scenery, the amazing location, and the wonderful people of The Ocean Sports Centre. And man can these people paddle!”
