Click on the picture for a full size view

Peter mailed this GPS-plot of Sunday's kayak trip. Thank you Peter! Now I can complete the statistics of the trip.
Peter has developed a softwaretool for planning kayak trips on tidal waters. It is called Seakayak Navigator and it offers the possibility to plan your kayaktrip on the PC. Seakayak Navigator also interacts with a GPS, so you can exchange waypoints, routes and tracks. Let me know when you are interested, I will contact you to Peter. In the next edition of "de Mededelingen" (the magazine of the Dutch NKB-seakayakgroup) an article of Peter on GPS navigation is published.
