Double platinum artist, Olly Murs, and his band mates descended on the FJB Watersports Academy in Sandbanks this week (February 16) to have a go at kayaking in Poole harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world.

Olly, who is currently in Bournemouth as part of his UK tour, is being followed by ITV2 for a television series.  The programme, due to be broadcast in April, tells the story of his tour and also sees Olly taking part in various challenges and activities along the route.

Sited at the Sandbanks Hotel, the FJB Watersports Academy is Sandbanks’ premier watersports training facility, providing first-class tuition for novices to experts alike in windsurfing, kitesurfing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, sailing and powerboating, and Olly and his band mates chose to take to Poole harbour for a kayak challenge.
