Valley Gemini SP

Valley Gemini SP

I was recently very fortunate to be lent a Valley Gemini SP, by Valley in Nottingham. As you can see from the pictures below it is a lovely looking boat with a blue glitter top and a funky white stripe. The Gemini SP is at the opposite end of the length scale to my...

The Stacks

2017-11-19 Super Stacks

After a very late night in the Paddlers Return for some and promises of being ready for an 08:30 meeting, I was somewhat surprised to see everyone looking fairly bright eyed and bushy tailed at 08:30!! Perhaps the hang-overs hadn’t kicked in yet! We then spent the next 20 minutes deciding to do Puffin...

Falmouth

2017-10-08 Falmouth St Mawes

Ages ago I booked myself onto Sea Kayaking Cornwall’s incident management week, not realising this was part of the courses week following their symposium weekend. At the time of booking, I thought I can travel down on the Saturday, taking it nice and easy, stopping overnight in the van if I need to. And...

Welsh Dolphins

2017-08-27 Cwmtydu to Ynys Lochtyn

Mrs T told me that on her boat trip a couple of days earlier, they had gone down the coast to Ynys Lochtyn, where there was another pod of dolphins. So setting of from Cwmtydu, I headed to Ynys Lochtyn, sticking close to the cliff to admire the cliff rock formations. At Ynys Lochtyn...

Wondering around the quaint Welsh port of New Quay (Ceinewydd)  my wife spotted a sign advertising two hour boat trips. “Why don’t I go on a boat trip whilst you go for a paddle” she said! Well I am not going to say no to that! An hour or so later I was setting off...

Kittiwake

2017-07 8th/9th The Farnes

I’ve had never paddled the Farnes before, but I remember years ago watching enviously a group of Sea Kayakers setting off from Bamburgh, when my kids were little and we were on holiday in that part of the world. Happy Days! Mike Robson put out an email saying he was running a trip on...

Puffins

2017-05-28 Flamborough Again

Paddling at Flamborough and along the Bempton Cliffs at this time of year make this trip a very special privilege. Many thanks to Mike Robson for organising. It was also a privilege to paddle once again with Ron Walker. Check out the photos below, which say it all really! To view in a light...

2017-05-07 The Skerries

Meeting with PDCC at 9:00am it was soon settled with the weather forecast and tides, a trip out to the Skerries was most definitely on. So off we went to meet again in the car park at Camaes Bay. It was only a couple of weeks ago Helen, Gordon and I paddled to the...
