The fleet has grown to four. -a Currrent Designs Gulfstream, a Seaward Legend (Nigel Foster design), a replica 1932 Disko Bay, West Greenland Skin-On-Frame, and a Seabird Designs Black Pearl (an East Greenlandic design by Bjorn Thomasson)
Most of the Southern coastline of Van Isl. (Sooke to Mill Bay)and the South Gulf Islands. I've never driven much more than a halfhour to get to a launch spot.
the psychedelic kind. Joking.. mostly day paddles.
It's like hiking for the upper body. The adrenelan from fast current and big waves. The wide variety of weather and sea state possibilities. Dramatic visuals. The meditative aspect I find in paddling.
Be it Fire, Flood, Earthquake, or any tragic event, my first question is " WILL THIS AFFECT MY PADDLING??"...I paddle all the seasons, with all types of weather. I paddle with a skinny stick.
