4 Star Sea Leader Training North Wales - Private

With calmer conditions than what we really needed, a journey to the stacks to find some rough water was the plan. North stack was on the last couple of hours of the ebb, so provided a gentle introduction to the day with eddy turns and working on accurate boat control with ferry glides. We pushed on to South stack (photo above) and with wind against tide appropriate rough water was found! Some surfing and practicing rolling and a paddle float self rescue in rough water, before finding a small bay for some lunch.

With a good hour into the flood Craig then led me back through South Stack, which was considerably rough for its first hour ... and back along to soldiers point.
