Kayaking the coast with basking Sharks:
Kayaking with sharks and exploring the coast of Man by kayak are the themes presented through stunning photography and video at St James schoolrooms on Friday March 1st. Craig Whalley has had some exciting experiences as he’s paddled around the Island with his camera: witnessing a landslide at the Chasms, getting more than he expected whilst shark fishing, exploring mines that are only accessible by sea and kayaking though the Sound makes for interesting watching! Starting at 7.30pm, the evening at £10 includes a shepherds pie supper, coffee and cake; please do bring your own wine or beer. To book ring Gilly on 844031, stating if you need a veggie option.
