March 26th - Sea kayaking trip Round Kerrera - Tony with Terry Joan and Victoria
It was a bit flat. So we paddled or kayaks right round Kerrera from Ganavan beach. It was an ideal day to potter along very close in so that we could examine the fascinating geology. As we paddled the south end of the island we could see the progressive layers from sandstone, then slate, then conglomerate and finally basalt. It took ages! But we got a nice evening sky. Victoria tried out a P&H Cetus, loaned by Outside Edge Oban and liked it so much that she bought it!
March 13th - Loch Awe
It was a bit fierce on the coast, so we launched near the Cruachan Power station on Loch Awe and paddled into a very cold force 3 to 4 north easterly wind to the head of the loch. It was a bit grim on the way up but very nice on the way back. Kristine, Liz, Wendy, Susan and Richard were impressively intrepid and actually seemed to enjoy it!
February 6th - BCU 3 Star test - Easdale
Ed wanted to do his 3 star sea kayak test. We found perfect test conditions at Easdale on Seil, but boy it was cold! He passed.
January 14th and 27th
Leonie is doing her Level 2 Coach training this year and she needs Open Canoe experience, so we went and had some fun on Loch Awe and Loch Etive. The ice was 200mm thick on parts of loch Awe.
