Susans kajakk

Tilbakemelding fra Susan Ellcome, Skottland

Susan Ellcome deltok på kajakkbyggekurs hoss kajakkspesialisten sommer 2006 I Vestfossen. Hun skriver:
I just wanted to write and thank you very much for  such a fantastic Greenland kayak building course. You are an excellent teacher, and I so enjoyed every minute of the course, and really learnt a great deal about the design and making of these amazing water craft, and felt very happy making my kayak. They are really fascinating and very beautiful, and I can't wait to try mine out. Vestfossen is certainly a lovely place to live, and I really enjoyed my time in Norway. Also, everyone on the course were so pleasant,  helpful and accommodating, 
especially with putting up with the constant English translating. But particularly, I wanted to thank you for being so patient and making  sure I understood every step. I think it was a great achievement that everybody finished their craft - it is all very exciting.
Best wishes Sue

Dear Anders,
I have orderded a tuilik from Canada, but it hasn't arrived yet, and  I haven't quite finished my paddle, however, with six coats of paint  (very thin!) on the hull and three on the deck, I finally decided it was time to launch my kayak yesterday in Loch Lomond.
Duncan Winning came along with some other friends and we enjoyed a great day out.
I think you will agree, the kayak looks beautiful thanks to all your help, and it felt really great to paddle and very comfortable. It was a little tippy when the wind came up from the side and there were also some small waves  from the side, but I managed to stay dry, and I am sure it will help my paddling skills.

It was a very grey day so the photos are not that wonderful, but I will send you some more when I go out again on a sunny day, and hopefully get some better photos.

Bye for now and thanks again.
All best wishes, Sue.

PS Have the others all launched their kayaks yet?

At vi selger en fantastisk god tørrdrakt i nettbutikken? Hva er både bra og billig? Svar: Cirrus drakten fra Britiske Crewsaver. Anders Thygesen brukte denne drakten på sin 76 dager lange padleekspedisjon langs hele Norges kyst.
