The shortest day of the year in the north hemisphere is but a few days away. The Winter Solstice, traditionally celebrated as the moment in winter when the days start again to get longer, the coming of the light, the light of spring.
For most of us paddlers, will mean a spring renewed, a chance to travel again to our favourite places, rivers and destinations. For us at Gene17Kayaking, we are aiming for a spring to remember in Valsesia in May 2021. By which time the vaccine roll out would be well under way, and some degree of normal travel should be possible. We hope you can join us in Italy for May or Norway for next summer.
Until then, we have some great news below from Valsesia which has seen both Jakub & Simon working on the Save the Sorba campaign committee. Plus Simon has been involved with the new Dagger Code Kayak prototype development. Available by summer 2021, this is Dagger Phantom like update for the classic river running creek boat the Dagger Mamba, both faster, easier to paddle and fun.
