There is also a comprehensive glossary to assist the reader in understanding the terms and concepts discussed in the main text.Woodhouse’s work differs from most manuals about sea kayaking in that it is written from the perspective of someone who paddles the Southern Hemisphere. As such, the major differences between the two hemispheres—weather patterns, navigation, laws, and terminology—are discussed, as well as compared to their Northern Hemisphere counterparts.In the end, paddling skills are paddling skills, hypothermia is hypothermia, and twenty-five-knot winds are twenty-five-knot winds.
