Re: Who CANT Eskimo roll

There are parallels with windsurfing here. Beginners used to have to learn on long, narrow, unstable, heavy, unmaneuverable logs with the rationale being this was the way to learn proper technique and balance. Fortunately things have moved on and beginners are now offered short, wide, stable, light...

Re: Circumnavigation of Mull

We paddled most of the way round Mull over 5 days last summer. It was a great trip but we cut it short due to incoming storm. We left from Seil on the Mainland in the early evening and wild camped near Frank lockwoods Island, next day we made it to the campsite at Fidden. Day 3 was a big one, Fidden...

Re: Nordkap Jubilee - Jim

Thanks for that Ryan, That really should do the trick. Btw, if you find your Jubilee doesnt have a big carbon skeg then you should consider buying the Alaw Beatch. It doesnt have nor indeed need a skeg but then you wouldnt be able to chip into the skeg conversations over on this forum- so pros and c...

Re: Nordkap Jubilee - Jim

Hi Ryan, I' m no expert but what I can glean from the community, its all down to skeggage. If youve got a big one you can probably take the boat to Greenland and if its made from carbon you will be able to paddle there. I enjoyed your mango boat sales pitch can you write one for my alaw bach. Cheers...

Re: Can you paddle River Ness instead of Caledonian Canal?

I would stick to the canal. There would be a likelyhood of damaging his boat on the weirs and shallows. Great progress.
