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.

Purty sea kayaks and the great tunnel of Geodha na h-Airdhe, St Kilda
Geodha na h-Airdhe is a 140m long tunnel right through the great headland of Gob na h-Airdhe on the north coast of Hirta in the St Kilda archipelago.
Alan comes through in his Nordkapp LV. I think this boat is one of the purtiest sea kayaks around!
Fiona F and Murty come through as the MV Cuma makes an appearance behind.
The scale of this arch is difficult to describe, in truth it is a tunnel!
Yup the Nordkapp LV sure is a purty boat. Pity the same can not be said of all those who paddle one! Photo Jennifer Wilcox.
With Boreray as a backdrop to the NE, Lena and Jennifer paddle across the great sweep of Glen Bay where we had arranged to rendezvous with the Cuma.
The Cuma's purpose will be revealed tomorrow...
