South West Sea Kayaking Guide book

Dartmouth to Totnes ferry.

Over the weekend we (A.S Watersports) hosted the launch of the South West Sea Kayaking Guide book. This is the first guide book to the S.W peninsular, eagerly awaited and worth the wait. We took delivery of the book on Thursday and launched it complete with a fanfare and unvailing at the shop. Demos from the the U.K and world leading sea kayak manufacturers were enjoyed and a good social had by all. A presentation and ale appreciation was had at the Devons most southerly pub and a paddle from Totnes to Dartmouth on Sunday. Over 30 kayaks on the water made for a very colourful prossecion. I paddled the Lettmann "Streamliner" and coverd twice as much ground than any one else because i got bored waiting for them all.

Sea kayaks of all types at The Ferryman, Dittisham, Dart estuary.

The man like Bewsey, the boss, the crazy and wage payer. Mitch.

Yup thats the one, Streamliner, a very quick touring boat and the thing thats keeping my shoulder together. Although we were with the tide i clocked 8 knots. The speed limit on the Dart estuary is 4-6. A nice day but sea kayaking is still not for me. The ocean is for surfing, boat or board.
