Rhoscolyn Beacon

2019-11-23 Porth Dafarch to Rhoscolyn

Saturday. Si and I met the others at the truck stop at 9:00am in Holyhead. We were joined by Ashley, Matt, and Gareth. Due to the tide, predicted swell and anticipated weather - a strengthening SW breeze, we decided to paddle from Porth Dafarch to Rhoscolyn and back. We didn't get to see much...

2018-07-21/22 Anglesey Circumnavigation

For some time now I've been thinking about paddling around Anglesey. Having read the various blogs out there, by various paddlers who have completed this challenge, I decided I must have a go. Besides, there are just two small sections of Anglesey I had not paddled, so if anything, it will complete the missing...

Owain on the Middle race at PM

2018-07-07 PM and Stacks with Owain

This Saturday saw me paddling with Owain, a friend I've known for some time from paddling the white water course at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham.

Perhaps the hang-overs hadn’t kicked in yet! We then spent the next 20 minutes deciding to do Puffin...

2015-04-18/19 Olly Anglesey Coaching Weekend

Saturday 18th April Once again after a very early start I arrived at Anglesey Outdoors for 9:00am on a Saturday morning. This weekend, organised by Sabina Neall, saw twelve “East Coast Sea kayakers” meeting together at Anglesey Outdoors for a coaching weekend with Olly Sanders. It was a big tide weekend and we were...

2014-11-24 The Stacks

Monday morning saw my paddle buddy and myself meeting with Phil Clegg (of Sea Kayaking Anglesey) at Anglesey Outdoors and deciding where to paddle. After lots of discussion and referencing of tide tables, guidebooks, weather forecasts, surf/swell forecasts etc, a good mug of tea and using Phil’s expert knowledge of these races, we decided...
