Jonathan continues: “I tried out for the Olympics four times and missed out by a few points of a second each time, but I never gave up. I did go to the Melbourne and Moscow Olympics as a spectator, the Los Angeles Olympics as the canoeing commentator for Network 10, the Sydney Olympics together with Jenny as officials and we worked as journalists for the Christian Mission at the London Olympics.”  

Jonathan’s life has been jam-packed with all things canoeing, including being the race commentator for Australian Canoeing for more than 40 years. He’s just finished renovating two Peterborough canoes too. His father bought one of them in 1954 for £60. 

He concludes: “The one Dad bought was made in 1900 from spruce and would have been imported by the Chipperfield Boatshed that was on the Yarra at Kew. The other one would have been built 15 years later. Peterborough canoes were the Rolls-Royce of canoes and were built for a gentleman to take a lady paddling quietly on a lake. Roy often fell out of his because the stern seat was set too far aft. He would lean back and the prow would lift and out he would go. I just need to relocate that back seat and that grand old canoe will be ready to live again.” Just paddling magic.
