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.

We met before dawn.
After two months of incessant wind and rain, today promised to be fair. Ian, Mike , Phil and myself met at Portencross on the Firth of Clyde.
We arrived at low water on a spring tide. This sea urchin found itself exposed...
...as we made our way through the narrow channel...
...to the open sea beyond. It was good to have Mike back on the water with us again.
Ian had driven down from Aberdeen to join us. It was great to meet up with him again after our last paddle together on the St Kilda trip.
We then set off at dawn for what promised to be a fantastic day.
