Our team

Adventure D is a new organisation started and run by a brother and sister partnership.  Here is a bit about us:



Chris McLeish

Co-founder/Activities coordinator 


Chris is a qualified BCU level 2 kayaking coaching, and RYA senior and advanced dinghy sailing instructor. He also holds a 2 day outdoor first aid qualification. Having started water-sports at just 14, he got the bug for adventure early in life. His initial love was sailing, but working in an outdoor sports centre for 8 years meant eventually kayaking came a-knocking and became his true love.  In his spare time he regularly kayaks on white-water rivers and loves to sea-kayak, too.  He also surfs, mountain-walks and cycles.  Adventure D was Chris's idea and he is the founder and creator of this exciting new organisation!
