Thanks for the warning guys, I never planed on being far out in open water but at times cutting across to gain access to the islands will be when we are farthest from shore.
I am slightly fimillar with the currents in the area but I'm sure its a different world on a kayak compared to a powered boat. I totally plan on taking it easy when it comes to the lakes, practicing on a beach or canals and taking our time.
We are not in any hurry to push our skill levels right from the start. We are both very exicted to just learn a new skill together. I think this will push us to do some more camping as well.
RKC has local tours and skill building events as well. I've been bringing our jump into the sport at work and discovered other people who do this already that we can learn from.
