What Kind of Kayaker Are You?

I think you get a strange, skewed view of kayakers and kayaking if you've done it for years. Of course, social media doesn't help either. If you believe Facebook, every kayaker in the world is either making a video, writing a book, jet-setting across Europe or working for a kayak company. Oh, and of course there are those who simply enjoy paddleboarding in a bikini sans life jacket...

The Emperor is Lost

I think J.C. Chandler, and Robert Redford for that matter, know a lot about sailing. So much so, that they blatantly showed anyone who knew what was going on, that their man, was, well, inept and ill prepared. Yeah, "Our Man" slogged through and faced the challenge, but really, it was only fate that kept him alive. He was simply a weekend warrior who for whatever reason got himself into a situation he had no business being in. And that IS a great story!
