Gary has been kayaking for more years than he cares to mention. In fact it is sometimes hard to believe that he didn't come out of the womb wearing a drysuit. He has an amazing ability to look effortless on any grade of river and puts this down to the considerable experience he has built up over the years.

Likes – Coaching, kayaking the gnarly stuff and Stella

Dislikes – Eating all the food on his plate.

Greatest Paddling Moment – Surviving the River Etive in spate conditions

Worst Paddling Moment – Swimming on the River Wandle in front of most of the club.

Ambitions – To paddle his C1 canoe down the Upper Dart. A river he has done so many times that he should barely need to put a stroke in. So he claims.
