Tom and I have been back and forth with each other all morning debating on what to do about the Guadiana Challenge. The weather report is looking bad with 30 knots of wind and rain all day long in Mertola on Saturday.
So we have decided to do the following. Cancel and refund all your entry fees. Should you wish to join us on the quay at Mertola, we will still go along and paddle at 15h00 on Saturday 22nd March.. It will only be a social paddle and the conditions will be pretty tough. Sadly our spring here in Portugal has been really crazy with lots of rain and storms.
We are really saddened by this turn of events but we wanted to let you know as soon as we could once we saw the weather reports in order for you to make alternative arrangements should you need to. There are still a core of people going along anyway but we won't have any food, festival and workshops going on. As a result we don't feel it's right to charge you and are refunding all of you who paid via Bookitman.
Back to the 2018 site.
Many thanks and apologies once again, but it is due to factors beyond our control.
All the best,
Tom, Nick and Mauro
