Re: Long weekend in Norway

May I suggest that you contact the West of Ireland Sea Kayak Association, a few of them did just that not too long ago. Their forum site is WISKA.IE. They are a good bunch and I'm sure they will be able to help you. If you can't get hold of them for any reason feel free to contact me : Digger7315@gm...

Re: waterproof camera for sea kayaking

I use the TG5. I'm very pleased with it. I'm careful with it and I rinse it with fresh water whenever it's been used on the sea. I keep it in the airing cupboard when I'm at home, along with my other electronic equipment such as VHF and PLB. I chose the TG5 because of the stated robustness and the g...

Hi all, can anyone please recommend a good, bright, robust, water proof torch. To be used mainly for sea caves but also as a general flashlight. I have a cheap yellow plastic, Shallow Dive brand one that has served me well for a few years but has now given up the ghost. It was alright and fairly bri...

Re: Life jacket /bouyancy aid

B/a is my choice, although I have no personal experience of using a life jacket I have seen a few canister jackets owned by other people who were fishermen that were discovered to have had empty cylinders for no apparent reason. A b/a always works provided it fits properly, is fitted correctly, is n...

Re: Low Telemark Turn

Thank you all for your very rapid replies to my query. It seems from what I can gather, that the Low Telemark Turn is the foundation of the stroke that is now the Low Brace Turn . When I was taught the low brace turn it was simply planted in the water at 90 degrees to the hips and held there, with s...

Low Telemark Turn

Does anyone know anything about a technique called the Low Telemark Turn? I saw a line drawing in a book in the late nineteen eightees. I think it may have been in Derek Hutchinson's book Sea Canoeing, I'm not sure. I don't think there was any kind of explanation with the drawing but it looked like ...

Re: South West Sea Kayaking Meet 2014?

Hi folks, This is my first post on this forum, having returned from living in the west of Ireland for over ten years, where I did a lot of sea kayaking on both the North Atlantic and the Shannon Estuary (I started kayaking in 1987). I would like to join in with your gathering if that is ok. I paddle...
