4. Breakdown Cover - Even if you have domestic breakdown cover, make sure to get add on cover for travelling abroad. The cost is usually very reasonable (under 100 euro) and usually covers up to 30 days or the entire trip if longer (read the small print). This can speed up recovery and repair or provide a replacement vehicle to continue your holiday if your own has to be towed home. It is also worth notifying your motor insurance provider as some may require advance notice and/or an additional premium for travelling abroad.

A Breakthrough Material from Venture and P&H
You won't see it, but you'll definitely feel it!
It's not often a product comes along which has improved in absolutely every way, but with CoreLite X there is no compromise:
* Canoes are approximately 3 to 5kg lighter, and sea kayaks weigh between 2 and 3kg less.
* Hull stiffness has seen a significant increase, bringing it closer to composite performance.
* Greater durability means they'll work as hard as you do, without showing their age.
Don't just take our word for it though, try it for yourself! Your local dealer and test centre is:
CoreLite X is quite simply, better; no need to have a separate instructor boat, as you'll enjoy paddling these as much as your clients will!
Venture Canoes available in CoreLite X
These class-leading, British made designs are available in CoreLite X now, and are fast becoming the choice of the UK's top canoe coaches.
"It was the combination of design, Venture's enthusiasm and CoreLite X that convinced me to paddle the Prospector 155; the new material is far stiffer and gives an enhanced experience on the water. Not only am I going to be paddling CoreLite X myself, but I am introducing more Venture canoes into my fleet."
- Ray Goodwin, Author of 'Canoeing' and Freelance Paddlesport Coach.
"I've been managing centres for over 15 years now and delivering coach courses through them all over the UK and Europe; durability of the boats at these locations is as important as handling and performance.
Rest-assured that I have tried my level best to destroy the CoreLite X prototypes lent to me; I have dragged them everywhere, thrown them down slip ways and pushed them off the top of a 12 canoe trailer. Bystanders winced, but the boat was fine every time. We all know that customers never take as much care of our boats as we'd like, but CoreLite X canoes will put your mind at ease."
- Richard Witheridge, UKCC Level 3 Coach & Coach Educator.

So the water has returned and its time to dust off the old boat and paddles and hit some of Irelands wettest rockiest ditches.
As you load up the car you listen as that bolt is still rolling around the inside of the hull from where it came you have no idea, and where its going to go is also a mystery as if it falls out would probably be less annoying for all of us.
A few weeks later and you start to wonder….. how important was that bolt?? As you pull through on your best boof and the seat slides back 3 inches leaving you in no mans land touching nothing and falling graciously from your boat.
So that bolt was a little important…….
Here at I-Canoe we understand just how important every single bolt is and also where they actually should go!

With the warm bright evenings, I-Canoe decided to do something a little different, As Ireland Premiere Kayak retailer we decided that with all this experience instore we should put it to use on the water so we started running Sea Kayak Sessions, easy beginner sea kayak trips around Dalkey or Howth, two beautiful trips for novice and expert alike, with the Irish Seas ever changing conditions no two trips are ever the same from the glass like seas upto the rolling wet stuff to keep everyone entertained.
Over the past few weeks these trips have become ever popular, and no with the evenings getting shorter again we have had the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful sunsets this side of Ireland
With only a few weeks left of bright evenings if your thinking about coming along get in touch we hope to run these through to late september but as always it depends on the weather.
Heres some of the latest photos from the trips
