Home from my second trip with Ian. Very well organised, friendly, accommodating. Ian made every member of the group feel welcome, and no one was made to feel they had to rush. His teaching and patience were endless. Thank you Ian.

Just home from a thoroughly enjoyable trip out on the beautiful Stour between Dedham and Flatford Mill. Ian was patient, friendly and informative. Can't wait to do Sudbury to Sea in September.

I went with my grown up son on a dank May afternoon, and after an hour of tuition, we started on our journey to Flatford Mills. It was great fun with our erratic sterering into the overgrown trees, and hitting the bank a few times....More
