The day's weather turned out to be perfect for this trip with a moderate to fresh wind pushing us along.
It took around three hours to paddle the 19 or so kilometres from Buffels to Long Beach Simon's Town.

Our first "away" trip is scheduled for this Sunday 27th April. Ideal weather is a moderate to fresh south easter so if the designated day does not oblige weather wise it will postponed to the following Sunday (or the Sunday after until it happens). Those wanting to paddle should meet at 8.30am in the Long Beach (behind Simon's Town Station) carpark where we will car pool up to reduce the number of vehicles driving to the reserve. Alternative routes will be decided there if the weather tells us to. Remember this is a longer and more exposed trip than the usual Sunday paddle. Those wishing to do the normal Sunday paddle please meet at the Simon's Town Jetty as usual.

I've done some research into the incessant, ceaseless, constant, continual, unabating, interminable, endless, unending, never-ending, everlasting, eternal, perpetual, continuous, nonstop, uninterrupted, unbroken, unremitting, persistent, relentless, unrelenting, unrelieved, sustained south easter blows we've been having and you can view the statistics here.
Sorry about that relentless unrelenting stream of similes.
Here's a picture of Mark at Cape Point last week, when we had a wind break, to relieve the tension.
