Qajaq build 2006 - Dick & Tom
zondag, 08 oktober 2006

ImageWhile paddling our first boats, Tom and I discovered that they didn't precisely match the way we wanted to use them. Our first boats were built as described in the books by Morris/Cunningham for Tom's Greenlander and by Wolfgang Brinck for my baidarka. The resulting boats were relatively high-volume and had high back decks. In my baidarka it was very difficult to sit with legs spread against the gunwales because of the peaked deck beams. And even though the paddling characteristics of the boats were fine what we wanted were lighter, lower-volume boats for daytrips equipped with bulkheads and hatches both aft and front and low aft decks for easy layback rolls. Luggage space should be no more than necessary for a weekend at most. There also was a wish for higher cruising speed if possible.

vrijdag, 29 september 2006
RoldemoFriday at 14:15 hrs we arrive at the Rhederlaag, to build up for the second Qajaq Treffen in the Netherlands. On the same spot as last year we hang the ropes for the ropesgymnastics under a large tarp roof incase the predicted rain comes. We pitch our tent close by.
At the end of the afternoon Freya arrives in her castle on wheels and soon we are on the water to practice some rolling and of course to try Freya's Qaanaaq ss, the 'sexy hexy'. Our friend Niklas has come especially from Sweden to participate.

Stocken Träffen Sweden 2006
vrijdag, 08 september 2006

Weinig golven

This year we visited the 'Stocken Träff', a seakayak symposium on the island Orust in Sweden. The symposium is organised by Orust Kayak, a seakayak centre and outfitter in the little village Stocken.
Besides the 'modern' seakayak, the 'traditional' seakayak is getting more coverage each year on this symposium. This year for instance the first 'Greenland' style rolling competition was organised. And the people of Qajaq.se (Magnus and Sten).  thought we should also compete, as we are paddling a traditional kayak and we can do more than one roll.

Making a neoprene Tuilik
woensdag, 15 februari 2006

tuilik in qajaqTriggered by a discussion on the QajaqUSA forum on a grouporder for material to make a neoprene tuilik and because we had already experienced the advantages of a (neoprene) Tuilik for practicing rolling at the Qajaq Træf in Denamark, we have been busy this winter to make our own Tuiliks from neoprene.
At first we wanted to join the grouporder in the US, but fortunately we were able to get a suitable address for neoprene in Italy. They were able to deliver the neoprene at competative prices. But from Italy the transportcosts are considerably lower and we do not have to pay importtaxes.
We made combined order with a couple of qajaq enthousiasts from Turnhout (B) and we ordered 7 sheets of neoprene from Italy (5 double sided and 2 single sided).
