Listing Detail Tabs

New edition of a thorough reference first published in 1981 when the sport was little known and revised/reprinted several times since then. Though certainly of interest and useful to the beginner, this reference is especially useful to the experienced paddler who needs specifics rather than generali.

John Dowd is a true adventurer, as well as a writer and photojournalist. He has worked as a seaman on a Danish freighter out of Libya; taught at New Zealand's Anakiwa Outward Bound School; paddled from Punta Arenas to Puerto Montt in Chile on assignment for National Geographic; and established himself in the Guinness Book of World Records by leading a 3600-kilometer kayak expedition from Venezuela to Miami along the Caribbean island chain. He is the author of Hogsty Reef and Rare and Endangered. He lives in Canada.

Since 1994 Canoe & Kayak Ltd has developed into the largest chain of specialist kayak centres in New Zealand and has a strong reputation as being a leader in developing the sport of kayaking.
