Isle of Man Kayaking - Basking Shark.

Spring tides last Sunday promised some exciting paddling down at the Calf Sound tidal races. This did not materialize as fast flows were not converted to surfable standing waves by that essential, but absent bit of wind. Instead, Jess retired early through boredom, and Ian decided to go fishing. On the way back to Port Erin we encountered one of the biggest fish in the World. This lone basking shark kept us entertained for a while before we returned to Port Erin for ice cream. We may have outgrown this race and plan to explore an all together more lethal alternative this weekend. Perhaps we need to raise our weather threshold or maybe some combination of the two is required.
