Hilbre race

Well, I entered my first race on Sunday and it was very clear from the start that I require a few more lengthy sessions on the sea.

Out of 36 entrants I came 30th, one thing I learnt was preparation is key as a late night before and a week out of the gym due to a injury to my back a week ago in the gym led to my stamina levels being very low.

On a positive, I didn't capsize in quite heavy overfalls at the end of Hilbre Island.

I picked my new paddle from Go Kayaking today and I am itching to get out and try it out.. Thanks for the discount Go Kayaking.
