After all the snow and freezing temperatures it was good to get back to the serious business of Kayaking.
Kevin, Andy, Mike and myself met on a muddy bank in Tollesbury ready for a bit of 2* training. One ingredient seemed to be missing – water!!. After a short wait we seal launched down the mud in graceful style and off up the Woodrolfe Creek.
After turning up Tollesbury Fleet we were soon meandering among a maze of creeks trying to find our way to end of Old Hall Creek. Kevin seemed confident he knew where he was at all times but I’m not convinced!!! After many u turns we eventually made it to a hard slip on the flooding tide. Once the sausage rolls and coffee were dispensed with the water was covering all the marches which made navigating back a lot easier.
On returning to Tollesbury (concentrating on out technique all the way) we were able to paddle up the high street past the old sail lofts closer to the car park, which was a bit of a novel experience.
Good to be back on the water and thanks to Kevin for his coaching once again. All wrapped up with a pint by a wood fire.
