Full Moon Paddle - Saturday 16th August 6pm

Not the most convenient day of the week but my pleas to the Moon for a date change fell on deaf ears and it is still happening on Saturday. So come on anyway, the forecast as of Wednesday looks okay.

As of Friday afternoon the forecast is still reasonable. Looking good!

And as of Saturday morning it will probably be a fresh south easter so a calm paddle is unlikely.

And now as at 12.45 the wind has dropped and it's really nice out there.

It's 2pm and the wind has picked up slightly, around 30kph and forming small whitecaps.

Because of the rugby it's probably a good idea to start at 6pm rather than 5.30

By the way, it's a partial eclipse tonight but it only begins around 9.30 so we will be well off the water but step outside later to have a look.
