How can you miss it? Tony's 50th Canoeing year; at his home club; enlivened with a barbecue on Hilbre Island (northern outpost of the Royal Canoe Club, still with Canoes in store dating back to the Rob Roy / Baden-Powell era in the late 19thC).

We're talking more than a hundred years of Sailing Canoe history. How can anyone not be there? (Steve Clarke excepted of course - daughter's wedding).
