Webmaster – Sandy Ferguson
Job: To put things like this page together and make things for kayaks to put on the DIY page.
Sandy has sailed for years, cruised in an assortment of dinghies including cruising an Olympic class Flying Dutchman and keelers round parts of New Zealand’s coast and the East China Sea. In 1983 he built his first kayak for his daughter’s 10th birthday and then one for himself because he wanted to circumnavigate D’Urville Island. Touring the Abel Tasman National Park, attending sea kayaking forums since 1989, leading trips, running a kayak building class and continuing to design and build kayaks his conclusions are: – you can make most things, often achieve a higher performance and save a lot of money doing it (probably due to his Scottish heritage – thrift and engineering!)..
Sandy is the author of Sea Kayaker’s Guide to Abel Tasman and the Marlborough Sounds, Sea Kayaker’s Guide to New Zealand’s South Island and Sea Kayaker’s Guide to Banks Peninsula as well as webmaster for KASK and the Canterbury Sea Kayak Network’s websites.
