    Default Hello there

    Hello everyone. I'm Alistair, living in Kent and just starting out both sea kayaking and open canoeing. I'm looking forward to a Summer of canoeing and camping between work and family commitments.

    Kayak & canoeing - does it get better? Doesn't matter what you paddle, as long as you paddle. Have fun with the two blades and single.
    May the gentleness of morning, greet your silent passage through endless waters...

    May all your winds be gentle. And for ww - May it rain the night before.

    Hi Alistair,welcome. Quite a few Kent(and Sussex! ) paddlers on this forum now with fairly frequent meet ups. Plenty of launch sites on the rivers and coats of Kent .

    Hope to see you on the water.
