Isle of Man Kayaking - Mass Paddle.

After my recent solo paddle, Saturday's outing was at the other extreme. Steve Watt of Manx Paddle Sports organised a "mass" paddle from Port Soderick to Gansey Beach, with 17 kayakers. It was great to see so many people and so many different kayaks on display. It has to be said that at times the conditions were advanced, particularly around the headlands. However, Steve has obviously coached them well as apart from a few tows due to strong winds, there were not many problems.
Still, back to familiar territory for me as I'm off to the tidal races at the Sound. We have Spring tides and so the races should be running well.
