Yes to owning a kayak and no to the sail boat. I have access at times to a small sail boat and I had the opportunity to sail with a French Sail Race team on the English Channel in 2008.
I own 7 kayaks, 2 rec boats, 2 inflatables, 2 whitewater creek boats, and 1 whitewater play boat. I do have a goal this year to purchase a touring boat.
My paddling experience would be ranked from intermediate to advance. I am a ACA Swiftwater Rescue Certified, once was an E.M.T. and I have kayaked up to Class IV rapids in the U.S. and around the world. My sailing experience would be an absolute beginner except for sailing The English Channel.
All the above!
Giant Road Bike, Cannondale Full Suspension Mountain Bike. Greenways, long distance less then 100 miles, mountain bike, and touring trips.
I have been kayaking on and off since I was 18. I became a more serious boater last year. I hurt my foot and I had to stop running, hiking, mountain climbing, and etc. The kayak still gave me the ability to be in the great outdoors.
Great way to meet some new friends.
