Split in the Kayak Island Quest

Sunday, 28 October 2007
Wendy Killoran Just saw the posting of the split between paddlers Wendy Killoran and René Seindal who are currently on the Kayak Island Quest.

Both paddlers were working together to circumnavigate the Italian islands of Sardinia and Sicily this Fall.

According to a post by René, it seems that there have been some disagreements around speed and time that were irreconcilable. They are both going to continue the quest, but separately.

I have no idea of what went on, and I would never want to take a guess. When I was younger, I used to read about many of the great expeditions across Antarctica. Those were rife with stress and heartache and very much the same issues.

It also reminds me of recent expeditions that had similar stresses even before the trip got off the ground.
