I have a question. Why do you go paddling? I asked myself that very same question years ago. Years ago my answer was because of the sports, the adventure, the close contact with nature… Now my answer has slightly changed. I kept telling myself that I’m addicted to sea kayaking, that I needed the workout and the companionship of my teammates. That is maybe not the whole truth. Those reasons are merely a cover up for what is maybe the real reason. I’m addicted to the sea… Do you think that a fisherman sails the seas his whole life just to catch fish…? It’s that attraction I think…. That counts for us also. We are sea wanderers! We love to be in the salt water, for so called rescue drills! Yeah right! While sea kayaking we spend perhaps more time in the water than in our craft. And the smiles, that’s an extra!
