Finally rolling

Anglesey weekend

Apart from forgetting most of my clothes and having to borrow various items of clothing from other kayakers, I had the most amazing kayak from Cemlyn bay to the 'Old Brickworks' 5.5 miles away.

Weather going was beautiful, along with amazing views and wild life, but the forecasted 35mph winds kicked in on the way back, luckily we were quite protected from the land as it was blowing a southerly.

Going across the bays where there was no protection was quite tricky and at times my heart was in my mouth but all in all a great trip and priceless advice gained from some of the Liverpool Kayaking Club.

Fantastic bunch of people, thank you.

It is really weird seeing the coast from water level as opposed to three miles off shore on a yacht. It's mind blowingly beautiful..

New Web Site

The new web site is now under construction --

The planned Kayak to Hilbre Island on Sunday did not happen due to the 30mph winds, re-scheduled for in a couple of weeks.

I am hopefully off to Trearddur Bay this weekend for some well needed sea kayaking. (weather permitting)

Nothing straight forward

When out with my son I mentioned that the challenge across the English Channel is happening on the 23rd July, only to find out that his graduation ceremony is on the same day.

Luckily I have booked the whole week from the 21st to 25th for the safety boat, so hopefully the weather will be kind on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday as Wednesday is no goer.

Training is going well with hopefully a 15 mile Kayak to Hilbre Island this Sunday, weather permitting.

I will seriously have to pick the next challenge so that it will not be orientated around the weather or the sea state.
