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.

Little sails in the Sound
We set off on the 10km crossing from Inchmarnock to Garroch Head. A light breeze got up so it was time to hoist sails.
The early morning sun glistened on the water as we paddle sailed...
...towards the misty hills above Garroch Head.
Slowly but steadily the distinctive sloping outline of St Blane's Hill changed from an outline to...
...a hill with shape, form and detail.
Soon we were below Dunagoil Hill where the wind dropped and we rounded...
...Garroch Head in a flat calm in the company of this yacht.
