Impromptu Splash 'n' Dash...

An Impromptu paddle this.
I was camped at the Knap in my van contemplating the possibility of a paddle around high water?
I'd popped to the shop for some T bags & spotted Peter, Melissa & Gareth from the Glam boaters on my way back to the van. I think they were just going for a splash in the Knap Bay or the old harbor but as they were happy for me to tag along I suggested heading to Jacksons bay a couple of headlands along.

Peter & Melissa normally paddle in calmer conditions but both seemed up for the challenge, (especially Melissa who just kept laughing when it got tough(LOL).
Gareth's a river & surf kayaker but keen to try some sea kayaking.

A bumpy start as we headed around to Barry Island, there was some decent following sea's to keep us all on out toe's.
I won't name name's but one of us took a tumble in the race off Jacksons just after this shot. Good x-rescue practice & a quick wave to the Barry Coastwatch to let them know that we were O.K.
A rest & a few rolls for me & Gareth at Jacksons Bay & we head back towards the Knap, giving way to the Barry Pilot first.

It was getting real interesting as we left the shelter of Jacksons Bay behind. I was expecting a bit of wind on tide but it seemed to arrive early & was about F4 with some good sized waves to play in. At least we were going into them.

 Melissa about to disappear.
 Gareth (Left) & Peter (right), hiding behind the swell.

It got particularly challenging just outside the old harbor but everyone did great & we all got back safe & with big grins on their faces. A good couple of hours...
