Over 20 years ago, Mark Rainsley was the only scout in his troop to capsize and swim when they tried kayaking. Undismayed, he enrolled for an 'intro to white water' course run by the current owner of Pesda Press, who threw him upside-down in his kayak over a Welsh waterfall. Mark has since paddled white water in over 20 countries on six continents and made first descents. He also sits on the BCU Expeditions Committee and created the most popular UK paddling media, the UK Rivers and UK Sea Kayak websites. Unfortunately, the humiliating wipe-outs and swims continue. Mark grew up near Britain's most inland point. For this reason, the sea has always retained a special allure for him, whilst retaining its air of mystery. After moving to the coast, Mark addressed this by buying a sea kayak and paddling solo around the South West. This 1997 paddle still ranks among his most cherished experiences. He has since sea paddled fanatically and has evangelically converted many other white-water paddlers.
