South West Sea Kayaking Isle of Wight to the Severn Estuary by Mark Rainsley

South West Sea Kayaking Isle of Wight to the Severn Estuary


South West Sea Kayaking Isle of Wight to the Severn Estuary by Mark Rainsley

In this fully updated second edition, the south-west coast of England is described in 50 great voyages, from the Isle of Wight to the Severn Estuary. As well as describing 50 great kayaking journeys, this book presents all the navigational and tidal information a sea kayaker needs on this magnificent section of coast. This means that it can also be used as a kayaker's 'pilot' for any journey they might wish to undertake in this area. It follows the successful format of other Pesda Press sea kayaking guides, presenting the information in a user-friendly fashion and making lavish use of maps and colour photographs.

About the Author

Over 20 years ago, Mark Rainsley was the only scout in his troop to capsize and swim when they tried kayaking. Mark has since paddled whitewater in over 20 countries on six continents and made first descents. He also sits on the BCU Expeditions Committee and created the most popular UK paddling media, the UK Rivers and UK Sea Kayak websites. Unfortunately, the humiliating wipe-outs and swims continue. Mark grew up near Britain's most inland point. For this reason, the sea has always retained a special allure for him, whilst retaining its air of mystery. After moving to the coast, Mark addressed this by buying a sea kayak and paddling solo around the South West. He has since sea paddled fanatically and has evangelically converted many other whitewater paddlers.
