I must see Old Harry from Dorset again

7th – 9th October 2011

My adventure began on Thursday 6th October and I still get a strong heartbeat every time I see a photo of Old Harry – I definitely must see him again – soon!

It all started in Lot’s Road Pub that Thursday evening, when 10 enthusiastic sea kayak paddlers met in […]

Paddler’s Poo Protocol

Whether you’re planning on ‘changing your shoes’ or ‘taking your trowel for a walk’ there’s no getting away from that call of nature when you’re out in the back of beyond on a paddling expedition – no matter what you call it.  Admittedly those are two of the more polite terms we’ve had knocking around […]

Kentish Sea Paddling the Return

Saturday 13th August 2011

In sea paddling terms can the Kent coast be compared to say Cornwall or Pembrokeshire or even Dorset for that matter?  No, possibly not but in its own way it is unique and even has some great paddling gems if you go looking for them and you get […]

Norfolk Wild Canoe Camping

5 – 7th August 2011

After paddling over 80km from Marlow to Chelsea in two days the previous weekend I was looking forward to what was meant to be a relatively relaxed paddle along the River Bure in Norfolk in good company and good weather.  Well… we I guess two out of three ain’t bad […]

A marathon a day: Helps get you from Marlow to Chel-say

30-31 July 2011

There’s nothing quite like the ‘home stretch’ whenever you’re out paddling – the optimism, the burst of speed, the feeling of ‘nearly there’.  Well on this trip we had two whole days of home stretch as we shuttled eight of the club boats 52 miles up river on the CKC trailer to […]

Epic river trip

In a departure from the usual Thursday evening we thought we would take advantage of the longer evenings and stretch our range a bit further with a trip to Shadwell Basin.  Six of us headed downstream at 6.30pm with a brisk tide taking us along the river.  On a glorious sunny evening we passed through […]

A wee jump-tour around Scotland

After many hours sitting in the same position in your kayak, best practice recommends you take a break, walk around and stretch your legs. CKC, in our usual style, took this advice one jump further on our recent visit to the Ardnamurchan peninsula…

After and open crossing to Tobermory on the Isle […]

Kentish 3 Star Sea Paddling

Sunday 29th and Monday 30th May 2011

So, who was there?  Fiona, Judes,  Stu, Izzy, Jonathon, Alan, Gieve and me as 3 Star Sea aspirants and Kate for a refresher.    Phil (organiser supremo) came along […]

Lymington to Lepe

Saturday 21st May 2011

Five CKC kayakers (Miranda, Toons, Jacquelin, Phil and I) loaded up at Cremorne and headed off for Lymington on Saturday 21 May.  It was easy to find Richard B in the car park because he had left a kayak on his roof.  The weather forecast indicated that a weather system bringing […]
