Water Crafts

How many different water crafts do you see above? This is part of a canoe kayak team, a junior Olympic development program in the islands - the ages range from 8 years old to adults.


This picture was inspired by Nerissa's Sports Day post of British Columbia. Got a canoe or kayak pic you'd like to share? Let me know! :)

Kala, As usual, you "done good"!! I counted 10 crafts, the entire scene is inviting and I enjoyed the video. Makes me want to visit again. Thanks for the cybervisit.

I think I see a few water crafts on the horizon but I can't make out what they are.

Hm, I'm no expert but I'd say there are at least three different kinds there...

Thanks for responses =)

Although as Kate pointed out, there are 10 crafts, Nicola actually figured out there were three "different" water crafts:
- One person olympic style kayaks;
- One person olympic style canoe;
- One person hawaiian canoe.

Natalie surprised me with her amazing eye sight and noticed the objects in the horizon - even I did not notice it - they are paragliders.
Here is the pic of the paraglider I took yesterday:

your photos makes me yearn for summer already. It wont be long though but I doubt you will be seeing me at the beach here. The waters here are cold even in mid- summer.
nice photos!

I'll bet that water is a lot warmer than here. Much nicer to fall into if your kayak tips ;-)

Beautiful shots. Puts mine to shame!

Beautiful pictures. The most desired destination in our country is Hawaii and there's even an expression in our language.
