improve and Improve + sea kayaking Anglesey, day 1

Gary had organised another weekend with friends, and he was getting the most from his week after his paddle around Anglesey, one day off then on for two days further sea kayaking!

In two small groups we began at two different locations, although on the same stretch of water so each group could get the most out of the day. This was The Menai Straits and the area know as the Swellies. I began above Britania bridge, going over new skills and strokes for some and refreshing these for others, in some gentle flow and wind.

We then paddled under the bridge and did some eddy turns before finding the other 4, and having some lunch.

In pairs as the current moved towards slack water, short course to paddle were given.

At Menai Bridge the ebb current had just began and provided us with a great opportunity to feel the flow and build on skills further

It was really quite wet!
