The Great Glen

Film + Q&A With Red Paddle Co

7pm Thursday 1st February 2024 at AS Watersports

In September 2023, Jamie Harman Red UK sales manager and athlete, set off on an epic challenge to paddle the Great Glen. The Great Glen has been one of the bucket list events for paddlers across the world. Showcasing Scotland in all her glory, paddlers cover the 92km length of the Great Glen which Jamie completed over 2 days battling the elements as well as his own demons.

The short film by talented Cornish film maker Samuel Glazebrook, follows Jamie paddling the new 14’ Sport+ board from training to race day. A raw and emotional journey, it’s a gripping watch

The Inside Passage – A 2000km unsupported kayak expedition

7pm Thursday 25th January 2024 at AS Watersports

In May to July 2023 our team embarked on a 2000km unsupported kayak expedition of The Inside Passage from Olympia in Washington State along the Fjordlands of Western British Columbia to Alaska.

The team comprised two able bodied civilians and six veterans with a variety of injuries such as head/abdomen gunshot wounds, bilateral above knee amputations, viral induced paralysis and PTSD, chronologically from The Falklands conflict to Iraq and Afghanistan. The team is aligned to raising funds for ‘The Not Forgotten’ a military charity, founded in 1920, which has been supporting ex-service personnel with disabilities through the provision of leisure & recreational activities, travel, holidays and outings. Members of the team are testament to the success of these objectives, having benefited personally from the services of The Not Forgotten in their early stages of rehabilitation. Five members of the team will share their experiences with you of the highs and lows of the expedition as well as logistical and medical planning, kit/kayak selection and training up some members who had never previously been in a kayak!
