A kayak building course held in Hobart during Jan 2010

Brian Schulz - www.capefalconkayak.com - came out to Australia to run two kayak building courses in January 2010. One course was held in Sydney and the other in Hobart. The Hobart group of six people built two Greenland Kayaks and four of Brian's F1 design. I chose the F1 as it looks to be a great all-rounder and should suit my requirements exactly.

Greg Simson hosted the Hobart course and found a perfect venue - the Sea Scout Hall at Sandy Bay - a stone's throw from the water and plenty of interested onlookers passing by.

The participants were - Greg Simson, Greenland Kayak - Peter Sutcliffe, F1 - Tim Parker, F1 - Basil McKinley, F1 - Lyn Murray, Greenland Kayak - and myself building an F1.
