North West Sea Kayakers - EoSM

Typically a wind blown, cold and damp sort of a weekend, the End of Season Meet (EoSM) for the North West Sea Kayakers proved to be unusually dry and sunny affair. Perhaps Kev's wind magnet has finally lost its power.
Either way - Caernarfon Bay was sublime.
Launching from Borthwen, a quick crossing from Rhoscolyn Head to Penrhyn Mawr saw us established on the circumnav. of Holy Island.
The race looked playful, though rather confused - it was also busy with more than one group working the inner channel - I sat awhile waiting to drop in but with the bulk of the trip still to paddle, continued, feeling slightly frustrated at passing by.
Approaching South Stack the sea was lively enough to provide some entertainment...
...the lighthouse and then the race at North Stack passed in quick succession.
Kev at the head of the race at North Stack - conditions here much smaller than they were further off shore and downstream.
After a little fun at Stanley Embankment, the Inland Sea proved to be a tranquil haven and once again I found myself surprised by the gentle beauty of the place. I hadn't taken many photos during the day, focusing on the paddling instead and after passing Four Mile Bridge I pushed the pace a little, still keen to improve on technique with the Legend Wings.
Chris, followed by Boots, also enjoying a wee blast, back to the sands of Borthwen.
