We Won 2 Big Film Festivals

Gordon, Morag and I are delighted that a cut-down version of our film Handling Emergency Situations has won its category in two separate film festivals in North America.

The first we heard about was the safety and education category of the Waterwalker Film Festival in Canada.

The other is the instructional category of the USA National Paddling Film Festival.

You'll find the full version of the film on Volume 3, Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown and a short download version here.

We're not going overboard just yet though.  We're still waiting to hear how we've done in the other competition we entered - the  and the Reel Paddling Film Festival.

Can we win the triple as we did back in 2009 with Volume 1.  (We won two but not Waterwalker in 2011 with Volume 2).

These awards help boost sales a little, but most importantly they draw sea kayaking tourists to Scotland's beautiful west coast, because the films go on tour across the US and Canada.  I'll let you know how we do in the other two competitions.
