As we were ...

Re: Canoe Ireland Wishlist

Holy Mackrel what the heck is going on? This was one of the best threads I've ever read on a Kayaking forum and it's now been rendered useless because all the constructive discussion/feedback has been removed and it's now descended into a fight. I haven't a clue what's going on with the ICU and I do...

Re: Canoe Ireland Wishlist

1) Tighter regulation and monitoring of ICU instructors. Instructor qualifications should be subject to renewal just like first aid qualifications are. Canoe Ireland should also have the mandate to revoke qualifications in cases of instructors acting dangerously or unethically. 2) More help towards ...

Re: Is kayaking a niche sport??

There's also the lack of understanding in terms of the comment's we've all heard from time to time.... "going for a row?", "hahahahahah, he fell over!" etc....
