Packrafting: A Beginner’s Guide by Chris Scott

Packrafting: A Beginners’ Guide is a perfect introduction to the recreational opportunities opened up by packrafting.

Adventure travel writer Chris Scott discovered packrafts in 2009 and he soon realised these lightweight, robust and portable boats were game changers for exploring the wilderness on land and water. His adventures started in the glens and lochs of the Scottish Highlands before heading for the wild rivers of France’s Massif Central, Utah’s Canyonlands, Iceland, Turkey’s Lycian coast and New Zealand as well as packrafting London’s 200-year-old Regent’s Canal.

Description

Packrafts are rugged, portable rafts, small enough to attach under a rucksack, but stable on the water to reassure first time paddlers. Weighing from 1-3 kilos, they open up a whole new world of amphibious adventuring, from navigating easily accessible waterways to discovering more challenging rivers and lochs only reachable on foot or bicycle. Packrafting: A Beginners’ Guide is a perfect introduction to the game-changing recreational opportunities opened up by packrafting. It takes you through the different types and features of packrafts to ensure that you buy a boat that is right for you and have the right gear to use with it. It clearly explains the basic paddling skills and how to safely evaluate risks on the water. It also introduces the different types of adventures you can undertake with your packraft, from paddling a local canal or river to lashing a bicycle over the bow or using a packable sail to traverse open water. The book is comprehensively illustrated with over 120 colour photographs making it easy to understand and clear to follow.
