Can I go Canoing while pregnant?

If a woman (not you) is normally healthy and has no complications and wears a life jacket and confines her trips to calm waters, YES; she can go canoeing;

BUT why have YOU not asked your DOCTOR this question? That would be the more sensible approach. I suggest that you obtain your doctor's opinion before thinking about it 1 more minute.

Some women are fit enough to ski, swim, kayak, canoe, fly, dive and waterski while pregnant. Only YOU and your DOCTOR can intelligently answer that question.

Any good tricks for kayak portage?

Whether portaging around that dam or nasty stretch on the river, from lake to lake in the boundary waters, or from the campsite down to the beach, the klip-n-go kayak strap makes the trip a breeze. No need to drag your boat along the ground anymore.

Is ogmore river estuary safe for kayaking?

The Ogmore can be paddled from as far up as the Ogmore vale. It's a wonderful river for beginners and beyond with lots of exciting little drops along its length. There are two weirs to look out for if in doubt walk around them (portage). In higher flows both wiers have stoppers worthy of respect. Once passed the Dipping Bridge (near turn off for Merthyr Mawr) things calm down to touring type water (flat). There is a confluence with the Ewenny not far from the Ogmore castle. Tides can be strong here and in the actual mouth of the estuary an incoming tide can kick up big surf. The rip as the river meets the sea is also worthy of respect. In short beginners should have a qualified river leader with them before tackling the Ogmore. That said it's a wonderful river. From the dipping bridge up an access agreement is in place which means no matter how good conditions are one should not paddle it during the fishing season.

How long will it take to kayak on a river 23 miles downstream?

The length of time it will take you to kayak 23 miles depends on two factors: 1) The speed at which you paddle. 2) The speed of the current. Depending on your fitness level and the type and length of kayak you are paddling, you may average from 1 to 3.5 miles per hour paddling speed. However, I would not estimate more than 3 mph over that distance. that assumes a fairly long boat and mostly continuous paddling. The speed of a river's current can vary widely from river to river, season to season, and place to place. A slow river may only go 1/4 to 1/2 miles per hour. A moderately fast one may run 4 MPH or more. A narrow river with many rapids may run even faster. Once you determine how fast you will paddle and how fast the river is running, you can calculate the duration for your paddle. If you paddle slowly at 1 mph and the river is a lazy one it could take you 20 hours or more. If you paddle vigorously and you're in a moderately fast river your journey may take less than 4 hours.

What year was the kayak created?

Kayaks evolved over at least several thousand years, rather than being invented by someone. Kaykas have been used by arctic people for millennia and have changed gradually during that time. As people migrated from Russia across the Bering Straight to Alaska, Northern Canada, and eventually to Greenland, they took with them their boatbuilding skills and adapted them to the conditions, materials, and the type of prey found in their new homes. Over thousands of years the design of the kayak was refined, and numerous types evolved. Traditionally, kayaks were built by covering a wooden frame with seal skin. In the 1900's there were modern boats made of wood, but kayaking did not enjoy very wide exposure. After the 1950's when fiberglass became available there was an increase in kayak building for several decades. However kayaking was still relatively unknown. In the mid 1980's the first plastic kayaks were manufactured and this sparked an upturn in the popularity of the sport. This increase in popularity was enhanced by Sit-on-top kayaks which did not require much skill. Currently, most kayaks are made of plastic, fiberglass, or kevlar. There has been a resurgance of interest in native kayaks, particularly the Greenland style.

How long does it take to paddle one mile in a kayak?

An average paddler can achieve 1-3 MPH for extended periods. Someone who is strong and experienced could reach 4-6 MPH. Paddling with or against the tide or current also affects travel time. So, the answer would be anywhere from less than 10 minutes to more than an hour, depending on the paddler and conditions.
