Decade The Ikkatsu Project Monday, 21 June, at 07:57

It seems hard to believe and I feel like I have to double-check the calendar every time I think about it, but we’re coming up on ten years now that the Ikkatsu Project has been chasing down marine debris and plastics in the water. Ten years. There have been some changes since then, for sure. The Hunger Games was at theaters, Call Me Maybe was all over the radio and a reasonable, young and personable American President won reelection. Different times.

It was after debris from the Japanese tsunami of the previous year was starting to make the news for washing up on Northwest shores that the Ikkatsu Project began, mostly as a way to get into places where other researchers hadn’t gone, using sea kayaks in a nod to both practicality and an adventurous spirit, counting and collecting plastic in numbers that a lot of people, including...

June 20th - Discovery Island (#49) Mike Jackson's Paddling Journal Monday, 21 June, at 00:39

The morning after my return from the six-week debris removal expeditions I managed to get out for a morning paddle with Dan. It was great to get out on the water after several weeks with almost no paddling. The wind and the current did not cause us much trouble (minimal lumpy water) and we saw quite a few others on the water. I found a scotsman fender/buoy on Griffin island which I managed to bring home! Mt Baker was nice and clear, but we could not see Mt. Rainier. Marbled murrelets, rhinoceros auklets, harlequin ducks, black oystercatchers, Canada geese, great blue herons were on the bird list. Looking at the track, we were able to keep up a steady pace.

May 27th - McMicking Inlet (#48) Mike Jackson's Paddling Journal Monday, 21 June, at 00:26

Carl and I went for an evening paddle to join the gang on the beach by the bog forest. We had the wind behind us on the way out and against on the way back to Cascadia. It was a beautiful evening and we also went for a short hike to the bog forest behind the beach. There were lots of sundews in the bog - more than I have seen before.

#støttetakmotkreft med basar, til Risøya Padlemia Sunday, 20 June, at 20:21

Ukens onsdagspadling gikk fra klubbnaustet. Vi skulle minnes Gunn Mary Hanssen med samme tur som hun var med og ordnet sist gang hun padlet med klubben – strandrydding og basar. Turen var også til minne om Bent Magne Karlsen, og flere fra hans familie padlet sin egen minnetur i Eidsfjorden. Per 20. juni har vi fått inn 17350 kroner til aksjon #støttetakmotkreft – det er ikke verst.

New Kayaks! Newfoundland Sea Kayaking Sunday, 20 June, at 16:52

 After long last, we finally got our new kayaks. They arrived on Thursday night from Eastern Outdoors in New Brunswick. We have been talking about getting new boats for years, and we have always loved Rockpool boats since we first saw Rene's from Kayak Venice. Not being able to travel due to COVID, we figured it was a good time to take the plunge. 


Just like Christmas!

Thule/2 – Björn Andersson

"Hej.  I sjön nu i morse vid halv sju, äntligen. Var lite segt i slutet med lack o slip, lack o slip. Bara vi o sjöfåglar ute.  Hällevik i bakgrunden.  

Känns bra. Jag har inte fått fästena till träluckorna än. Har beställt dzus, hoppas jag får plats med dom vid sidan om reed-locken.  

Sitsarna är väl mer snygga än bra Woozy Face on Apple iOS 14.6 Rätt tunga o hårda. Får kanske lägga i neopren, jag har som är mjuk o 10mm tjock. Eller göra skumsitsar som i Jack

Men båten känns väldigt bra. Lätt att hålla fart utan att ta i. Det gäller att sitta mitt i så det inte lutar hela tiden, krävs mer vana men det kommer. Att sitta o prata utan behöva ropa till varandra är trevligt, man kommer ju dessutom alltid fram till samma ställe, bara en sån sak!

Vikten: jag vägde den med alla prylar i ( sitsar pedaler luckor etc) men före lackning: 23-24 kg. Två kg lack på det så kanske 26 färdig men har ingen våg här. 

Hörs, blir nog en Spray också. 

Hälsningar Björn"

Days like these - a spectacular morning on Loch Hourn Mountain and Sea Scotland Saturday, 19 June, at 15:57


I slept really well at our camp on Loch Hourn, waking early as the light grew stronger.  Stepping outside, this was my first view of the day - the majestic Ladhar Bheinn rearing into a flawless blue sky across the loch.  I've climbed Ladhar Bheinn twice, once from each side of the hill, and had remarkably good weather both times.  It's one of the Munro "superstars" in my opinion and anyone who climbed it on this day would have an unforgettable ascent.

Nybegyndertur Pouls kajakblog Thursday, 17 June, at 21:47

Hjarne havde inviteret til nybegyndertur.


Den gik med 13 roere til De Hvide Svaner, hvor vi nød den medbragte mad. Jeg tog hjemturen rundt om Lindholm sammen med 5 andre. Da vi lå ved Ydernæs var der en af begynderne der gerne ville have en kajakspids og træne lidt forøvelser til rul.

Stig og jeg rullede også 5-6 gange. Om det var lidt ondt i ryggen, en stor klat tang i hovedet eller dårlig koncentration, ved jeg ikke - men jeg måtte ud af kajakken og lavede efterføl...

Stafet for livet Pouls kajakblog Thursday, 17 June, at 21:43

Jeg havde en gammel aftale med en flyveven - Kim - om at deltage i Stafet for Livet sammen med Arresø Kajakkub, så jeg surrede Perlen på taget og kørte til Ramløse Havn.

Det blæste voldsomt - op til 18 m i støddene - så stafetroningen foregik inde i havnen. Det var ikke verdens mest spændende sted at ro rundt, så efter en del omgange fik jeg lokket Kim med ud på søen. 

Jeg kom ud i den kraftige blæst og fik rettet kajakken op mod vinden. Jeg lå og vent...

Tur med Louise Pouls kajakblog Thursday, 17 June, at 21:40

Louise fortalte ved en familie sammenkomst at hun gerne ville i gang med at ro kajak efter en længere pause.  

Vi tog en 9 km tur til Gavnø og retur ad Gammelåen. Det lykkedes mig at knække en af mine hule pagajer da jeg skulle prøve en redning og fik lagt for meget tryk på - hvad der viste sig at være - et meget tyndt blad - ØV! 

Louise fik mit træktov bundet i kajakken og fik fornøjelsen af at trække mig - jeg roede dog med, og tog endda den sidste del af turen for egen (halv) kraft.

When the squall passed the skies began to clear. This proved to be an ideal time to stop at a tidal island with a lonesome pine to sit under and......enjoy first luncheon in the sun. Unfortunately the squall appeared to have taken up permanent residence in inner Loch Hourn, our destination.Refreshed by our break we continued east up the narrowing loch in a brief weather window.

Sist lørdag ble det langt bedre vær enn vi en tid var forespeilet, så takk og pris for at det ble satt opp en alternativ tur da minneturen ble utsatt. Vi har nemlig aksjon #støttetakmotkreft gående nå (innsamling HER - velg beløp sjøl), og skal ha en egen tur der vi hedrer minnet til Gunn Mary Hanssen og Bent Magne Karlsen som det lille padlemiljøet vårt mistet i fjor. Samtidig samler vi inn penger til Kreftforeningen, og turen på lørdag ble startskuddet på vår lille aksjon. (Som i skrivende stund har fått inn 9300 kroner!) Her har vi startet fra Lekang, Wenche, Lillian, Johnny, Trond og jeg.

Looking Downstream The Ikkatsu Project Tuesday, 15 June, at 01:51

You can hear it before you ever see it. The trail twists and turns, rises and falls, and with each dip and curl the sound changes, steadily getting louder with each step. With the canoe balanced on your shoulders and your head up under it as you walk, the sound sort of echoes and bounces around your ears. Louder, now.

You walk around a bend in the trail and suddenly it is right there in front of you. Fast moving water, a river in flood with all the accompanying sound and fury, seemingly trying to rise up and bust its banks, the line between shore and river blurring as the water p...

Time and tide on the shore of Loch Hourn Mountain and Sea Scotland Thursday, 10 June, at 20:38


A leisurely paddle back along the shore of upper Loch Hourn took us back to our intended camp site on the point where we'd sheltered from the worst of the earlier squall.  The kayakers could carry our boats above the tideline, Donny moored his F-RIB "Guppy" in a small bay close by where it would be well out of the tidal stream.  There was plenty of space to camp here and good ground to pitch our tents; we got set up and did the usual sorting of kit after a day on the water.  

I really enjoy this aspect of trips whether by kayak or on foot - a reasonably early arrival at camp with time to enjoy the evening and to appreciate the setting.  This is a pretty remote spot, takes a bit of getting to and is well worth spending some time at.  The flow of the tide past the camp was quite hypnotic, it was fascinating watching the development of boils and swirls on the ebb and then the flood.

As we paddled east along the south shore of Loch Hourn the mountains closed round us.Loch Hourn is a flooded U shaped glaciated valley and in some places the mountains fall straight into the sea as here at Creag an t-Sagairt (roughly translates as pulpit rock).On the north side of the loch, Arnisdale House was dwarfed by the foothills of Beinn Sgritheall.

The Numbers The Ikkatsu Project Thursday, 10 June, at 18:41

Ok… this all takes some time to collate and cross-check and data entry is not my jam, but the numbers for last weekend’s Tacoma Shoreline Survey are finally counted and put in their places. It’s not a complete count; plenty of people were out cleaning the beaches without submitting information about what they found. There’s always room for improvement when it comes to data but at least the trash got taken off the beach, whether we ended up tallying it or not. With that in mind, we should look at these numbers as being on the lower end of what was actually collected.

Roksøyfjorden og Stamnesåsen til fots Padlemia Monday, 07 June, at 23:54



Leif-Hermann, Berit og jeg hadde egentlig tenkt å padle forrige søndag. Jeg sovnet imidlertid seint, og tenkte at det var gått litt skeis da jeg våknet godt utpå dagen. Nå måtte jo de være kommet seg av gårde for lenge siden, tenkte jeg. Men så tikket det inn melding – om det fristet å være med å gå Roksøyfjorden og Stamnesåsen? Ja! lød svaret fra meg. Vi parkerte innerst i fjorden, og har her akkurat tatt de første skrittene utover.
