I ended up on this groyne,  or one similar anyway!  when the tide turned on a trip last weekend at Calshot. The following shots were from that same trip………..

A bit of history……….

…..about the boat I currently own.

After paddling quite a few plastic boats at the various courses I attended, and after using a NDK Explorer for one of the trips, I was quite keen to get hold of a glassfibre boat for myself. The Nordkapp above was picked up on eBay last year, and came with an expedition history…

The guy who sold the boat to me explained that this was the first British Expedition by single seater kayaks to travel from Italy to Malta in 1982. This was a journey of 220 miles in length, with an open sea crossing of 60 miles between Sicily and Malta.
