This trip was the main reason that I came to Cornwall early for my 4 star assessment. It's high on my list of things to do this year.
I had a walk to Lizard point on Thursday, I've visited there many times before but I wanted to check out the conditions that I'd be likely to encounter. I wish I hadn't, it was only blowing about F4 but the race just offshore had 15-20 foot waves breaking over the reefs! I've never seen anything like that before so I was more than a little apprehensive about the paddle today.

I was making a good 4.5 Knots from camp to Kynance Cove & I was eager to reach Lizard Point.

How the hell did you get your kayak back on the bus with you?ReplyDelete
Timed to perfection,obviously caught the lizard asleep. I'd imagine it could get rather intresting out there :-)ReplyDelete
Looks a nice trip - bit far south for a die hard northerner like me!ReplyDelete
Good luck with the assessment.
Hey J, I talked very, very nicely to the bus driver :)ReplyDelete
Noel, Defiantly timed it right, I've never seen 15-20 foot waves before.
Will, North is fab but I cant recommend the Lizard & Lands End Enough, BLOODY AMAZING!!!
