As well as writing the Essential Courses article on the BCU 4* Sea Kayak Training article, which involved some interesting interviews with a range of high level BCU coaches, I’ve also got a couple of reviews in this issue:

  1. Valley Etain 17-5 & Valley Etain RM
  2. Werner Corryvrecken and Werner Shuna Paddles

Look out for a cracking competition from Valley which could make you the proud owner of a Valley Etain RM kayak as well as a stunning cover image from superb outdoor photographer and paddler Bryan Hansel.
