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.

Rain squalls over Ailsa Craig.
As Phil and I approached Drumbain Point there was no sign of Ailsa Craig. It was completely...
...obscured by a heavy rain squall. At first we thought it was going to catch us out too but...
......the squall gradually cleared and we continued south under lightening skies.
Ailsa Craig normally dominates the views of the mouth of the Firth of Clyde and it was good to have it back again. I hope to paddle there again soon but as it is 16km from the nearest part of the mainland it is an exposed paddle. You need to be quite fit in case unexpected squalls blow in so Phil and I pressed on into the southerly wind. Each stroke was another step on the road to recovery of paddling fitness.
