A sea kayak or touring kayak is a kayak developed for the sport of paddling on open waters of lakes, bays, and the ocean. Sea Kayaks are longer than whitewater boats to allow for higher cruising speeds, easier straight line paddling and stowage for expedition equipment. Trips can last from a few hours to several weeks.
Club members use pool sessions to practise skills, especially in water rescue skills, as when at sea, going to shore to sort out problems is often not an option.
Members paddle around various parts of the coast from Cornwall to the Orkneys as well as around the world.
