Summer 2012

Hello,

With the long evening and sunny days (I hope) approaching, we all hope to get out on the water. As im new to the sport, puchasing my new kayak(ouassou) last november. I was lucky to get out on a lake several times before the weather got bad later on in the month. I hope to get out during the summer and the few months ahead.

As I said i'm new to this sport and im wondering, is there any events like kayak from A to B or such events that me and my kayak as suitable for during the summer or coming months either on the sea or rivers..

Thanks..

Sorry for the delay.

i'd look to the paddling community. irishfreestyle, irishwhitewater etc.... Most events are listed there.
