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.

Gardskagi, Do not roll!
The wind continued to increase...
...so we nosed into a sea loch for a bit of shelter.
We were not the first to seek shelter here...
...Ian noticed a strange object on shore.
It was Gardskagi: 64⁰02,57N 22⁰55,93V I thought it was a Dutch weather buoy, given the manufacturer's stamp, "Datawell Netherlands", but JotM has identified the language of the coordinates as Danish..
It was over 1200km out of position. Its normal station is off the SW tip of Iceland.
It had some good advice on the top. Do not roll - trail only. We pondered these words of wisdom.
