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.

Slack water in the North Channel.
We left Port Stilton in almost perfect conditions.
The North Channel coastline of the Rhins of Galloway is for the most part devoid of any sign of human activity.
Our only companions were fulmars which swooped round us with wing tips skimming the sea.
As our mission to the Mull of Logan progressed, the sun crossed the yardarm and the water went glassy calm. Slack water had arrived in the North Channel.
