Not true I'm afraid.

The concept of the kayak mackerel race was first started by me at the Mudeford Demo day 3 years ago.

It has since been copied by others for their meets with my blessing but none have been so deceitful to claim it is there idea up till now.

SHAME ON YOU! :angry:

I wonder how long it will be before someone claims that they invented the anchor reel or the pot bouy tie :rolleyes:

But I suppose that is life.Some people innovate whilst others imitate :D

Have they claimed it, or has the journalist just used the word 'unique' when they shouldn't? It's possible.

Sounds like a cracking idea, anyway. Instantly made me think of the Beaujolais run thingy :D
