Which means they believe in offering the freedom to explore the Lakes when, where and for however long you like. Joe has lived in the Lakes for the past 17 years. Joe has had his fair share of fun in the area. You name it, he's probably done it. he runs, he SUPs, he bikes and all for a good cause. Chelsea having just left college in 2008, decided on taking a GAP year and headed to the UK from New Zealand. 10 years down the line and that GAP year is still going! During this time she has trained as a paddlesports instructor (with British Canoeing qualifications), worked in an outdoor activity centre and managed a watersports retail, hire and tuition centre.
