The Whisky Plank.

Life seems to get in the way of many people taking the time to appreciate even the little things. It is a sad indictment of our time and we do understand.

Do you remember looking forward to the post arriving? We love getting interesting and exciting news through our letterbox. Sadly the days of people taking the time to put pen to paper to share their news are gone. It’s not that there aren’t people, like us, out there who would happily take the time to write to you. Would you take the time to read it?

We are making it our mission (well one of them) to help you! We have put our newsletter into an interesting, informative and interactive video series called 'The Whisky Plank'. Welcome to the first edition. 

We plan to release an episode bi-monthly, but we may surprise you by adding a bonus edition when we can. We will be sharing exciting news, offering tips and ideas on trips and equipment, interviews with interesting people, and a Questions and Answers (Q&A) section for you to pose questions that you, our guests, students, and members, will find helpful. If there is a subject that you would like us to cover in an episode please let us know. 

Our Whisky Plank is for you, from us. Oh, and if you’d like to know why the name ... you’ll have to press play and watch our first episode! Stay safe, be kind and we look forward to seeing you on the water very soon.
