Buffells to Simon's Town

SUN 8am. And that's how quickly it changes. No rain now but a shower in the northerly distance. Let's meet at the shop and make the call there.

SUN tam. Conditions are wet and chilly with a light north easter. Not great but do-able however rain is still forecast for most of the day. Trips meeting time delayed until 9am to make a later call.

Forecast conditions for this Sunday the 20th look good although possible rain showers.  There may be a small wave to get through at the launch as well.

The plan if we go ahead is to meet at the shop at 8.30am to car pool down to the reserve.
As usual we will update here on the blog with new forecasts as they change. The go ahead will be given here and also on this Twitter account which is easier to update and more reliable. You don't need to join or follow if you don't want, just go to this web page.

Sunset paddle pics

Awesome is a somewhat overused and thus devalued word but it does capture the paddle from last night. As pleasing as these pictures are, they don't come close to catching the wonder of the evening on the water. Only thing that could improve it would be the full moon rising - hopefully we will have an equally good evening for the next Full Moon Paddle on June 4th.

The white dot in the sky on the next three pictures is Venus

Peninsula Paddle Sunday 3 June 2012

Last year a group of sea kayakers from Paddlers in Simon's Town accompanied the full route from the start of the 2011 Peninsula Paddle at Zandvlei to Marina da Gama.  This created a great spectacle as an ‘armada’ of paddlers headed out together.
