Jersey Sea Kayaking Symposium

Brittany to Britain, my first visit to Jersey and the Channel Islands.

Jersey, and the other Channel Islands offer a great variety of sea kayaking opportunities. Some highlights of my visit? Paddling tidal-races off Tour de Rozel and Belle Hougue. Day trips to the Paternosters rocks and to Les Écrehou islands. Barbeques and evening meals in the gorgeous settings of Corbière and Grève de Lecq. Cliff jumping at Plemont Pt. An overnight trip to the Island of Sark. And topping it off with a one-day circumnavigation of Jersey, enjoying, and photographing, all the high lights again. Thank you Kevin and all at the Jersey Canoe Club.
