north wales sea kayaking - rapid development xpedition training

This was to be our last training weekend before our paddle around Wales beginning in early April. With a forecast of f5/6 we planned a paddle from Newbrough (on the SW corner of Anglesey) into the Menai Straits and along to Penmon Point. This would give us some surf to work with, current and importantly distance.

Looking out from Newbrough, into the surf.
Sue and Di timing it well through some surf, before turning left and working our way through the sand bars into the Straits.

Passing Caernarfon Castle, Menai Straits.

A super lunch spot on the edge of the Swellies with Sue, Paul and Di, looking towards Menai Bridge.

The journey was finished with an exciting posh into wind and a landing through some dumping surf. Loading the boats on to the trailer and a drive back to Rhoscolyn and our bunkhouse accommodation, for showers and then an early short walk to the White Eagle for a couple of well earned drinks and some super food, wrapped up the evening well.
