Full Moon Paddle 30th and 1st

Well I have to say we had the most brilliant paddle on Wednesday - I'd even call it an Epic paddle. For two reasons: it was that fabulous and all seven paddlers on the trip, by sheer coincidence, were in Epics. We headed to the lighthouse and from there surfed the 1ft swells back to Seaforth from where Margaret was followed by a playful jumping seal all the way to Windmill Beach. Complete darkness fell as we began our return to Simon's Town and the best was yet to come as we entered a red tide area and all the way back our way was lit by the most beautiful phosphoresence. We didn't want it to end!

There is a Friday Full Moon Paddle with Coastal Kayak so call them if you want to join in.

Cape Point Sunday 27th May

A stunning winter's day paddle in Cape Town. Warm, no wind and flat calm seas at the put-in but big and choppy swells at Cape Point for the 15 paddlers who made the trip. For 5 or 6 of them it was their first time at the Point and they were "stoked" - that's Trish celebrating "losing her virginity". Note on the map of the route we took how it registers the little sidetrack into the cave.
