It was important for Georgi to get a good understanding of how to use a single kayak. Previously, we had used tandem kayaks and Lenny had done the steering (where that facility was available).
The kayaks we had purchased were approximately 4.5 metres long and came with a rudder.
We looked for a place that was sheltered and where we could get the bus close to the water so that it wouldn't be too difficult to launch the kayak and then retrieve, clean and restow the kayak.
Cornelian Bay looked like a good option, although we found that the sand (and seaweed) could be a bit sticky in places.
We took Kermit to the water and threatened to hit him with a bottle of champagne if he didn't behave.
Georgi and Kermit got on beautifully and at one stage it looked like they might paddle around to the docks!
The first paddle in our own kayak was a great success and we could look forward to more paddling with confidence.
