The Complete Book of Sea Kayaking by Derek C. Hutchinson

First published in 1976, The Complete Book of Sea Kayaking is a comprehensive guide for the beginner and an invaluable reference book for the experienced sea kayaker. Originally penned by the late Derek C. Hutchinson, an international authority on sea kayaking, it describes equipment, basic and advanced techniques, weather and navigation, and is illustrated throughout by the author’s own drawings and color photographs.
This new 40th anniversary edition has been completely updated in line with the latest sea kayaking developments by Wayne Horodowich, a longtime friend of Hutchinson's and the founder of University of Sea Kayaking.

About the Author

The late Derek Hutchinson had long been regarded as the father of modern-day sea kayaking and an international authority on the sport. Current author Wayne Horodowich, a disciple of Derek Hutchinson’s teachings and a close friend, is the two-time former captain of the US Surf Kayaking Team’s world championship teams. Together with Hutchinson, he taught sea kayaking clinics across the country, including many attached to Outward Bound programs. In 2000, he started the University of Sea Kayaking to promote sea kayaking education (useakayak.org) and still teaches kayaking around the country.
