Maesbury Boat Rally

I'm doing two things I've never done before this Saturday coming. Unless I've already told you what they are, I doubt you'll guess... If you click on this link, then click on Maesbury rally then general information, you'll see it actually is true and I'm not just a fantasist!

So what am I doing? Well, I'm opening a boat rally at Maesbury. And then I'm judging the best dressed boat competition. Does anybody have any hints for either as I don't actually know what's involved. But I am looking forward to it and feel very honoured to have been asked. Should be fun!

And if you're confused as to why I was asked, well let's just say I was involved in a very unexpected project last year - before being employed by Plaid Cymru - and co-presented a TV series called Waterworld (not to be confused with the Kevin Costner film!), which explored the history of canals in Wales and the Midlands. I was a historian at one point, hence why I was asked to participate. It really was so much fun, and I learnt a hell of a lot about Wales and canals and saw some beautiful places. Alas, I still haven't been on a boating holiday but hope to sometime soon. Maybe I'll be inspired to book one after Saturday!

Might I say I thought the programme Waterworld was top quality and enjoyed the programme about Bala Lake immensely.

That's lovely to hear, thanks. The Bala lake one was great fun to film!
