Rob Mercer - Sea Kayak Sailing & Safety

Rob recently had an article published in the UK's premium sea kayaking magazine Ocean Paddler. The article gives a timely run down on the aspects of safety that need to be considered for anyone keen to get into kayak sailing on the open sea, especially poignant when seen in the light of a couple of recent near misses around our home waters. 

Now that we are stocking Flat Earth Kayak Sails it's worth reminding prospective customers of the skills & protocols you need to have in place before you head out onto the sea with your sail fitted.

You can read the article in it's entirety HERE.  It has plenty of local input from paddlers like Andrew Eddy, Shaan Gresser and Matt Bezzina, & provides plenty of food for thought.
