A big thank you to all those who attended our fun and rewarding canoe day picking rubbish from the banks of the Fal, and to all those unrecognised others who do this every time they go out.
Of course our once a year Fal litter pick isn’t enough to keep the pristine environment of the River Fal free from rubbish. Our aim however is to win the hearts and minds of other water users and visitors to not let that crisp bag fall out of the pocket or drinks can to float away with the tide.
Our latest activity ‘Spear-throwing’ will be unveiled at the Port Eliot festival in July. Below you can see the specially made spear heads made by the very talented @studiogimli. They’ve fashioned the first batch of spearheads to compliment the axe throwing sessions @porteliotfestival this year.
He has created some superb arrow heads in the past but these are truely wonderful! Can’t wait to attach some Ash to these and give them a go! Thanks Daniel! #spear #blacksmith #ancientweapons
And of course no spear head at Canoe Cornwall is complete without an Ash stave. Below is our first hand-whittled stave that will again feature at the Port Eliot festival, alongside axe-throwing and archery.
Port Elliot festival had its highlights, and here is a cherished one, shared to us from the Port Elliot website from our 2018. The creek on the Anthony House grounds is quite marvelous when the tide is in.
The scorched banks amd people swimming serve as a reminder of what a wonderfully warm summer 2018 was. Thank you Lisa for sending this to us.
What an adventure the Vikings were at the Port Elliot festival. Along with their Viking ways came Axe-throwing. It has to be the most satisfyng feeling in the world to see your axe spin through the air and embed into the solid Oak target board.
If you are interested in having a go, ask before booking your next Archery session and we can bring them along for a spin. If you have a party or stag/hen do coming up, get in touch about our mobile axe throwing activity.
Off to the Port Elliot festival again. This time I’m going to advertise properly, except I didn’t get down to the printers in time. Who needs expensive advertising when you can DIY! Lol. Should of paid more attention in art classes!
Yes, the Vikings are coming. Again we are at the Port Elliot festival this 26th-29th July. This year we are linking up with the Vikings and their Axe throwing event to give you that real back-woods experience. Come and join us at the Port Elliot festival down by the water side.
