Kayakers paddle to Sable Island

Kayakers paddle to Sable Island | The Chronicle Herald

Two Halifax kayakers have successfully braved the unforgiving waters of the North Atlantic to paddle more than 175 kilometres from Nova Scotia to Sable Island in what they are describing as a life-changing experience. “It was nothing short of magical,” said Jan-Sebastian La Pierre, who made the nearly 30-hour voyage from Canso, the nearest point on Nova Scotia’s mainland to the island, with paddling partner Graham Carter.

 Just so that folks understand what these people accomplished ... the nickname of Sable Island is "The Graveyard of the Atlantic". It is basically a jumped up sandbar on the edge of the continental shelf and surrounded by the North Atlantic. Not for the timid.
