Re: New to paddling in Ireland - some guidance needed please

Also not all paddling in Ireland needs rain - surf can be good on the west & south coasts through the summer.

Re: Wacko in the Jacko

Was a really excellent event, very well run. Little bit more water might've been nice, but was great to see a big crowd of people enjoying paddling in the sunshine, big smiles all round. :)

Re: ICU in need of reform?

If you have no opinion on any of the above, please at least answer the following: Do you have any idea of the structure of the ICU? (my understanding is not complete - but surely that's part of the issue?) Yes... as should anyone who's ever done an ICU instructor training course, it's been covered ...

Re: Travel Insurance?

Wow JK, you're like, my hero. But you knew that anyway, right?
Sportscoverdirect... looks really good... covers everything I want covered, but would cost me £161 (that's sterling) for an annual policy. That's a lot of money!

Re: Travel Insurance?

Right, bringing this back up to the top! I knew there was a reason I wasn't convinced about FYI... while most of their stuff is reasonable, they only cover search and rescue up to a max of €3500, which seems miserably low if (god forbid) one needed helicoptering out of somewhere.

Travel Insurance?

Hi folks, just wondering who people have used / would recommend for an annual travel insurance policy. It'd need to cover kayaking, snowboarding and mountain biking.
