Cockney Visitation

Paul comes down to South Wales for a spot of chilly post Christmas paddling in the surf at Porthcawl. More about it here.

At least we got out for a few hours - didn't go far, just played in the surf

Loaned Cetus from P and H

P and H have kindly sponsored both Paul and myself for the circumnavigation of Britain. While they build my boat they have kindly provided me with a demo Cetus to start paddling with. The boat they are building will be the new Cetus HV, slightly different to the original Cetus, but that's for another time.

Some more pics here.

Playing in the soup with the Cetus

very refreshing!

Paddling Challenge

It's been a little manic to say the very least over the last few months and as such the blog has taken a bit of a back seat. I've committed to partake in an exciting adventure with a gent who was looking for a partner to circumnavigate the UK by sea kayak.

One thing has let to another and I'm now trying to play catch up. The trip is due to begin in April 2012 so getting hold of a boat and various kit has taken a high priority, and various other logistical aspects are competing for attention. The tick list is long and nowhere near finished - the list that is - not the ticking off of the items on it!

In an attempt to move into some form of mobile blogging arrangement I've chosen to move to wordpress, so have been setting up a website for the circumnavigation expedition.

The story kind of starts here. I hope you enjoy the ride - it's starting to build momentum and take on a life of it's own.
