Pride and Prejudice Pool Session

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single person, in possession of a good kayak, must be in want of another. Jane Austen died on July 18th, 1817, and this was how the little-known first draft of Pride & Prejudice began before her publisher got hold of it. If he’d had access to a friendly, warm, well-run pool session for his kayaking needs then it might have been a very different book indeed. Pool session this Thursday - see you there!
