OK. Not an official trip but seeing as I am the only official sea kayaker in the club I thought it was worth a post. One of the regular advanced winter series with Roger of Coastal Spirit, I thought it would be called off given the weather forecast of F4/5 on Saturday and 7/8 on Sunday, but luckily it went ahead. Saturday, north coast of Anglesey and Harry Furlough's rocks just outside Cemlyn Bay. Fantastic little tide race....river conditions with 1m swell. Practiced 360 degree turns, rolls and rescues with the odd bongo slide (unplanned). Roll wasn't 100% successful along with re-entry and rolls so you might see the sea kayak in the pool this week. Sunday's weather suggested the Straits might be the best bet for safer paddling. Great trip from the Sea zoo to Menai Bridge against a 5 knot flow with wind assistance and eddy hopping. Surfed and played in the flows around the islands between Menai and Britannia Bridges. Great weekend. Official club sea kayak trip next year (check the forum post). guaranteed water, no scrapes, sign up......you know you want to!
