North Wales Sea Kayaking - Improve

Ian and Keith leading the return journey on the Menai Straits, with Mari Ann and Richard in their double, and Alistair along side. Experiencing the last hour of the ebb and the effects of wind against tide.

This weekend saw some mixed weather, with Saturday, being windier with grey skies and showers and Sunday, blue skies and decreasing wind.
Initially we focused on turning strokes, a brief refresher for some, and progressed on to ferry gliding the current, (to cross to the other side, with out loosing, if any distance). Sunday was from Moefre to Porth Eilean, on the East coast of Anglesey. Beyond Dulas bay, many seals were seen dosing near the shore, adding to whole experience. For Mari-Ann and Richard above it was exploring what they could do in their double kayak, and how far they could push it ... yes they got wet! before paddling around Point Lynas.
