Baja a Go

I just booked my flights to Baja! A magic place for scenery and wildlife!

Since 2008 I am organizing trips for Dutch paddlers out of Loreto using the logistics of Ginni Callahan's Sea Kayak Baja Mexico. From 9 until 20 Februari 2016 we will paddle from Mulege to Loreto including Isla Carmen.

This is the first year we have an international team and there are now only two spaces left on this trip. The maximum group size, including the two guides, is only 7-8 people.

This is an exposed coastal trip in the Sea of Cortez, and your paddling ability should be of BCU 3* Sea level or equivalent with sea kayak camping experience. More information is on the Sea Kayak Baja Mexico website, and/or contact me (or SKBM).

If you want to join us, please reserve your spot directly at Sea Kayak Baja Mexico.

In the latest Ocean Paddler Magazine (#48), Ginni Callahan writes about her Sea of Cortez trip last year with Justine Curgenven.

Sweet as

Inevitably I have to return home some day. Barry, Justine & Tara went surfing at Rhosneigr while I packed-up my stuff and loaded kayaks for the return journey. And drove-by Rhosneigr for these pictures.

Thank you Nigel (Sea Kayaking UK) for letting me borrow my old and trusted Explorer. Mike (Rockpool Kayaks) for making my Taran16 seat moveable. Barry, Justine & Tara for great company and paddling. Fred and Walter for joining me on the 'fluke' decision to just come over for a long weekend to go paddling in Anglesey. It was more than just good.
