Imagine you are at the edge of the sea on a day when it is difficult to say where the land ends and the sea begins and where the sea ends and the sky begins. Sea kayaking lets you explore these and your own boundaries and broadens your horizons. Sea kayaking is the new mountaineering.

Farewell to Ailsa.
As we left Ailsa Craig, a light wind helped our progress back to the Ayrshire coast.
By the time we were half way across the wind had begun to drop and...
...we completed the crossing in flat calm conditions. Donald had motored on ahead of us as he faced a long slog up the beach with his boat.
All too soon we were weaving our way through the Lendalfoot skerries...
...and made landfall at the end of another fantastic voyage to Ailsa Craig.
As we completed our packing, we left Ailsa Craig floating on a dreamy sea, with the cries of the birds still ringing in our ears.
