From Cormorants to Castles SEA KAYAKING ENGLAND'S NORTH SEA, PART ONE

Hutchinson is widely acknowledged as one of the sport's founders. The pair battles unpredictable weather and fierce North Sea currents, and dodges the spray from a blowhole that spews water 100 feet into the air. They also learn about lighthouse keepers and rugged individualists who once lived here and about the wildlife that now call these islands home.
