Wish List

Although sea kayaking is a relatively simple sport, with only a few necessities required, there are certain bits of kit, outside of normal every day paddling that are desirable when contemplating an expedition. I am looking for assistance in acquiring the items below.

If you should feel so inclined to assist me with any item, then please give me a call. Many thanks.

Binos   Having lost my old bino’s at sea, (slipped overboard when I thought they were tied on) I thought it would be a good idea to replace them with a pair that actually floated!

Price £50.00
Drybags   Can never have enough of these as they always get holes in due to the packing/unpacking through the hatches.

Price £19.00 for a pack of 4
Flares   Hopefully I will not have to use these, but will still need to carry them in case.

Price £100.00
Go_pro   I want to record my trip and make a small documentary if I can, so that I can show all my supporters what it was like out there, and post small clips onto this website. This model has been recommended by those that know!

Price £300.00
iPad   This may seem a bit odd, but this is not for me, this is for my Wife & Daughters (9 & 7) to be able to check up on my progress as they travel around providing some support for me, and give them some peace of mind that Daddy is doing ok.

Price £280.00
Spot   This personnel GPS Tracking device will not only work as a locator beacon should an emergency arise, but it will also enable me to link my progress to this website, so that my progress can be monitored.It also enables me to send text messages when there is no mobile phone coverage.

Price £120.00
B_Aid   Probably the best sea kayaking buoyancy aid “in the world” and considering that my old buoyancy aid  is now 20 yrs old, and a bit flat, I think I need to upgrade.

Price £150.00
Sail   This would be a massive boost to the homeward stretch up the long coastline of Cardigan Bay. And a big assistance on the three or four open crossings that I hope to undertake.

Price £300.00
Solar_panels   I aim to keep rechargeable battery power to a minimum, but I will need to charge up certain items, such as my phone and the Video camera, these flexible, waterproof panels are designed for marine use, and will not corrode.

Price £95.00
