Stor-Saimen paddling, Juni 2022

Stor-Saimen paddling, Juni 2022.

Årets insjöpaddling startade och slutade i Partakorki i Savitaipale kommun. I början var vädret inte det bästa; regn och blåst, men redan halvvägs visade norra Stor-Saimen sin soliga sida. Här finns otaliga fina sandstränder och lägerplatser. Det blev fem paddlingsdagar och 141 kilometer.

Midsommarpaddling, Juni 2021

Midsommarpaddling, Juni 2021.

Årets insjöpaddling startade och slutade i Anttola, ca. 30 km sydost om St. Michel. Det var glest med båtar, kajaker och människor under midsommarveckan ute i skärgården. Vädret var i överlag bra, om man vill klaga så var det lite onödigt hett. Med kajak söker man ibland vindskydd i lä av holmar, den här gången sökte vi skugga. För min den blev det 191 km på 6 dagar.

Ikaalinen - Tampere kayak trip, june 2011

Our inland kayak trip started right after the 5o5- Championships in Helsinki. On sunday evening we drove to Manso-niemi, where we on monday morning set off. When we got to Kyröskoski later that day we found out, to our surprise, that the whole river Pappilanjoki in Kyröskoski was closed. One of us had to go back and get our car to get us passed this unforseen obstacle. Despite this setback the trip was a success, we had all kinds of weather and gathered 73kms.

Huittinen - Pori kayak trip, June 2010

Our latest inland kayaking trip started in Huittinen where we ended up last year. Our goal this year was to finish up in Pori, 85 kilometers away, by the coast. The idea was to leave the car in Huittinen and after reaching Pori, one of us would take a bus back to Huittinen to get the car. This was the last stage of five. Fortunately there are a lot of lakes and waterways to explore in coming summers but there is no way to top the weather we had on this trip.

Hanko Sea Kayak Gathering, August 2009

Kayakists from all over Finland gathered for their second annual meeting in Hanko, in southern Finland. There were lots of lectures and practical training to better safety and navigation etc.

On the other hand this meeting gave the opportunity to meet and enjoy the sport with likeminded people.

A big thanks to the organizers, NIL Finland.
