|Ultimate Kayaks have
supported us with a discount on our Epic mid-wing paddles:
These are a lightweight and forgiving wing which is small yet powerful for long distance sea kayaking. They were recommended by a fellow sea paddler. When I borrowed these I knew immediately I wanted a pair and Andy didn’t take much arm twisting once he’d had a go too! We can strongly recommend these paddles.
|Valley Sea Kayaks have supported us by supplying and delivering, free of charge, two new hatch covers for our Aleut sea kayak.|
|Weir Quay Boatyard has supported us by supplying flares for our expedition.|
