Used of these shores for fifteen years. He paddled around Ithaca with Nérée (April 2011) and with his son around Meganissi (July 2014). He is the initiator of this trip (kayak: Marlin Goltziana).
Coming from the Palavas-seakayak club, he used to paddle in the north parts of Europa (britanny, Greeland, Norge). He is able to realise some perfect sweets anywhere (Kayak Petrel JFK).
Alpin whitewater paddler and funboarder, he is a secure sea-kayaker and a jolly fellow. He is also our driver with VW T5 for this journey (SeaKayak Riot).
He completes the team during this greek week, not in his Marlin but with his computer, because of professionals obligations. He’ll try to give news about the trip, day by day, on this website.
Kayak de mer en méditerranée
This week to paddle in a mediterranean paradise go directly in mind of this Facebook page. On this social network, visited by international fans, the pictures will have a privileged treatment.
“Mariolos moines monachus” the association created by Colette & Jean-marie Daste, helped us to know this rare kind of seal. When we come back we hope give them some good news of this animal in Ionian Islands.
On Friday in the evening w’ll have to put the kayaks on the car, and bring the luggages inside. A long way with nearly 900 km waits the team. We’ll awake early in the morning, to drive during 9 hours on motorways and to arrive in Ancona. From this italian harbor the journey go on with the ferry to Igoumenista.

By a late awakening, from the deck of the ferry, in pouring rain, we can see the rough sea. Wrapped up, our regrets to leave the Adriatic are less bitter.
