I was thinking of coming with my sea boat.

if the numbers are too great and you want to split a bit I’d be happy to lead other sea kayaks.

Kayak - does this mean I am not eligible?

You will be fine so long as its not an outright playboat that goes round in circles! It will be more of a social cruise. Richard & I are now going in sea kayaks.
