Wednesday 2nd Paddle

At last the wind seems to have abated for while - welcome winter? Wednesday evening looks like it will be very calm so come on down to Simon's Town for a paddle. We will have the new Sea Bear kayak there as well so people can give it a try out if there's time.

Lack of post

Sorry that there has been so little action on this blog of late but it's frankly been too depressing to twice weekly have to complain that it's too windy for a decent paddle! Everybody who has lived here for a while is of the same opinion as me - it's the longest period of consistent high winds that anyone can remember. Those few who like the really strong winds to do downwind runs have had a lot of fun however. You can watch a short video of one here. A few years ago we had a terrible south-easter season over Christmas which prompted me to do a comparison with the previous year. See it here if interested. I will try and see if I can do it again for this period if it doesn't depress me too much.
Anyway this weekend still looks very windy with perhaps a drop by Tuesday as it turns northerly. Next Wednesday is forecast for light northerlies so it's a more wintery feel.
