Isle of Man Kayaking - Full On!

We headed off in the general direction of the Sound. There were no thoughts of surfing the race as we didn't have spring tides. But we stumbled upon a tidal race at full speed and in all its glory. We still have much to learn about what makes a race work. Sometimes we venture down to the Sound, with 5 metre plus tides predicted and we are often disappointed. Today's 4.6 metre tide was souped up by residual swell from yesterdays storms, plus a healthy dose of wind against tide.
