Following on from his hugely successful book Sea Kayak, Gordon Brown brings his vast experience and unique style to this latest publication Sea Kayak Safety and Rescue. Each chapter begins with a real-life incident which sets the scene and helps to emphasise what follows. The underlying principles are highlighted, practical lessons learnt and the hard skills explored in detail. Numerous colour photos complement and illustrate the text.
This book is essential reading for any sea kayaker, and will be enjoyed and valued by both novice and experienced paddlers alike.
Gordon has recently moved from the Isle of Skye in Scotland to Vancouver Island in Canada.
