A Friday night out with the boy's, or so they thought?
The texts went out, 8PM at the captains wife, who's up for it? Oh, & bring your kayaks :D
It's been on the cards for a while this trip, A crazy dream that's been gnawing away at me till I give into it. The plan was to paddle from the captains wife in Sully to Flat Holm Island 4 miles offshore.
It was going to be very dark on the way out as the moon wont rise till around 10PM, should be fun.Glam Boaters) out for a paddle. He's a busy boy is Andy.

It was in fact quite bumpy on the way out with the race off the West side of Sully Island throwing up little waves & some swell running too.
We had chatted & gawped at the moon too long & had missed the first quarter of slack water that I had planned to use to reach Lavernock (whoops). We quickly get on the water, with a quick seal launch for me & Jules & set course for Lavernock. In fact Andy suggested the start of Penarth as a bearing so we aimed at that.
The last few minuets were spent amusing ourselves by blinding each other with the camera flash's & empty threats of rolling practice.
It was gone 1 AM before I got too bed & I'm off to the bay tomorrow to teach rescues. Think the cold might put them off :)
