North Wales sea kayaking - Winter skills sea kayaking course

This weekend saw some settled weather in North Wales. With a reasonable spring tide, Treadour bay to Rhoscolyn was the paddle for Saturday. We started on use of body to assist the turn and here Andy is doing a great cross deck bow rudder.

We were about 1 hour after high water so made the most of putting the strokes into context. Below Tracey is paddling through the White Arch.

We stopped just before Rhoscolyn headland for some lunch. Simon back at his boat.

There was little flow off the headland, so we did a couple of eddy turns and paddled on towards the Beacon, looking for some rougher water. We found some good channels and went over stern rudders, use of body and blade angle and depth.

Big thanks to Sue for helping with the shuttle.
