Sea kayaking in Netherlands is not known for it's tide-races. Having said that, occasionally one can find standing waves over (shifting) sand bars. Today we could play at the T2 buoy off Texel. Continuing around Noorderhaaks (with a Peddelpraat club trip) with more sand bars and wide surf zones. Three capsizes, one roll, two swim's, one re-entry-and-roll and one T-rescue. Hey! I did not flip once! And a good work-out against the wind on the way back. Last week's sore back muscle still there this morning: gone! Start of Summer.

Good friends of mine, Paul de Haas and Marian Makelaar (center two in below picture) have started on their circumnavigation of Ireland. You can check their progress on their website.
In 2007 they paddled around the Faroe Island and wrote about that trip in "Op Pad" Magazine.
