Throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s Hamish Gow was at the forefront of Scottish Sea Kayaking.
He and his wife Anne were the first people to sea kayak to St Kilda, the cluster of islands 40 miles into the North Atlantic.
Hamish was a keen photographer and cine film maker. (and anti-nuke protestor!)
Now he has kindly allowed me to use his old home movies, shot on Barra, Mingulay, Staffa, the Treshnish Islands and St Kilda.
I've combined this with professionally shot, modern footage to produce a 24 minute video called Hamish’s Kayaking Films. The trailer is below.
From 1st October will be available as an HD Download from Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown.com. An 8 minute, cut-down version will appear in our new Rescues DVD which is partly shot on St Kilda.
