Kayaking Isle of Man - Snow?

On Sunday Ian and myself braved the cold and headed out of Peel. It's always difficult to motivate yourself when it's this cold. Great Clouds of steam exited our nostrils as we paddled south, buffeted by the force 6 winds billowing down from the cliffs above. As our fingers painfully thawed we had the now compulsory left and right roles to look forward to. We make no concessions to the weather!
I'm still dependent on Ian for photographs having recently destroyed another waterproof camera. I've ordered a Pentax Optio W60 which should arrive soon. It claims to be waterproof down to 4 metres for 2 hours, and can deal with temperatures as low as minus 10 deg C! You'd think that would be sufficient but the last one claimed to be waterproof down to 10 metres and leaked after just 2 months. I'll keep you posted.
