Sea Kayakers Prayer [37]

Dave Winkworth has suggested as an alternative to the waiver: we should all adopt the following prayer.

Our sport which is on the ocean
Hallowed be thy name
Till kingdom come
The paddling will be done
On estuaries as it is on the ocean
Give us this day
Fair paddling weather
Forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those bastards that want to sue us
Deliver us not into temptation to deck the sods
But deliver us from lawyers (and our homes too!)
For the ocean is the kingdom
The sweat and the tears
For ever and ever


Of course to use such a prayer the correct technique of praying must be adopted. Therefore a special training program has been setup and below you see some kayakers learning the way.
