Oh SOT it…

The boats

Final decisions have now been made on the kayaking part of the challenge. We did not know quite what to do so said “SOT it”! For those of you still in the dark, SOT stands for “Sit On Top” a popular choice of canoe or kayak for the novice (which we most definitely are). The modern boat is however much more than a comedy craft designed for splashing about at the beach. Ours have hull profiles which are identical to the more conventional sit inside craft and cut the water in very similar fashion (a Perception Freedom – Expedition and a Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120). They are however easier we believe to manage as capsizing is more a case of falling off, rather than an upside down underwater oddessy; although we are rather hoping that it is not something we will have to worry about!
