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.

Keeping in line on the Solway.
Back in October, Billy, Jim, Phil, Tony and I convened at Carrick shore in Scotland's deep south, the Solway.
We planned to take the flood tide east to Little Ross Island and Kirkcudbright Bay.
A nice NW breeze soon had the Flat Earth sail filled and I was flying away towards Barlocco Isle.
It is just as well that the wind dropped or we would not have been able to practice five abreast formation paddling...
