Kayaking – a lost art!

After a weekend on Derwent Water in the Lake District with Felix and Bridget we have decided to use “sit on” style touring canoes. I am sure there will be purists chocking in to their beer at this point, but for novices they are very simple to use, are safe and cut the water nicely. The chosen boats look like being Perception “Freedom Expedition” which are built by a British company in Surrey and have the same hull profile as their closed cockpit K1 sea-kayak. One result of the weekend training is that Felix is now going to use Bridget’s rowing machine each day (she was a Cambridge rowing Blue… so no rest for Felix then).
