Launch of the Argyll Sea Kayak Trail

Selkie accompanied three kayakers on part of the launch of the Argyll Sea Kayak Trail on Monday 21 July. It was also one of ten satellites of the Commonwealth Flotilla converging on Glasgow for the Games.

The first crew met Rob and two Stramash kayakers off Goat Island (Eilean Duin) and accompanied them back to HQ, where there was a picnic lunch and a crew change for the rowers. The second crew went down beyond Degnish Point, then waved off the kayakers to Arduaine before returning to HQ via a quick sunbathe at Port na Morachd.

The Mid Argyll skiff and the Kyles skiff were joining the next members of the kayak relay, before all the flotillas assemble at Greenock at the end of the week.

There is no rowing in the Commonwealth Games. Having been disappointed by not being allowed to row up the Clyde through Glasgow as part of the flotilla (health & safety etc), at least we could join in a small part of the Commonwealth Games in our own waters.
