Paddles with an Anas acuta...... unashamedly biased toward the sea kayak of that name (actually the voyages of two boats, one 'traffic over gold', one 'quill')

An ideal Xmas present

A review from Canoeist Magazine November 2013, page 63

Whilst this is what Kevin Mansell said:
If you are considering a kayaking trip to Brittany then this recently published guide is a must have book.  Written by two Breton paddlers it has been translated into English by Peter Bisset, a member of the Portsmouth Canoe Club.
Jammed full of useful information there are hours of reading, not only about the 60 recommended paddles but also about the wider issues of paddling in France.
If you are considering a visit to this delightful region of France, where there is huge sea kayaking potential for paddlers of all ability levels, then this book is a must have item.

The cooler water makes me hesitate a second before my end-of-trip practice roll or two at this time of year. The sudden shock of cold water must be good for you??!! Now is the time to think ahead to the warmer water and what better destination for the European sea paddler than Brittany.

Brittany is also one of the better destinations for non-kayaking family members. Putting a copy of this guide under the Xmas tree might head off a trip to somewhere less family friendly.

It should be easy to find a copy at your local canoe shop, bookshop or on-line seller, but if you have any problems drop me a line.
