Canoefest 2016 Day 2

In the afternoon there were a number of races in huge expedition canoes. A resounding victory for the team in boat number one I think. and there was also a chance to try your hand at axe throwing! The day was rounded off with a fabulous meal and barn dance (very un-coordinated on my part!) More to follow in Day 3.
