Freezing! Thats my lasting memory of this trip, bloody freezing!
I got a call off Andy the club coach to see if I wanted to do a short paddle on Sunday? Does a bear shit in the woods, of course I was up for it. So Sunday morning saw me arrive at Penarth where Pete & Steve (also from the club) were already. We all all looking at the choppy sea & biting wind & having second thoughts (LOL).
I figured though that as the wind would be on our backs it wouldn't feel quite so bad.
Soon Andy from the club arrived with another Andy. Boats were loaded & left while they sorted the portage out as we were to paddle from Penarth to Barry, about 7-8 miles?
We passed the Rannies without incedent though our speed didn't half pick up & Lavernock was soon far behind.
Next it was Sully Island & time for a little break.
Once my core temperature was thoroughly diminished it was then time to move on paddling across Sully Bay to reach Barry Harbour.
I was teasing a couple of the Guys about the race at nells point but again the South Easterlies were taking the bite out of the races :(
