Paddles with an Anas acuta...... unashamedly biased toward the sea kayak of that name (actually the voyages of two boats, one 'traffic over gold', one 'quill')

Flat water blues

 Calm seas in the central Solent but bright winter sunshine.
 The race at Lepe Spit proved very very tame, balancing the paddle failed to increase the challenge, but the idea caught on.

 A step too far!
 The Red Funnel ferries and CMA-CGM were a distraction as we crossed the shipping channel. We were hoping for a wake, but alas the modern hull is much too efficient, barely leaving a ripple. It was warm enough for the first few rolls of 2015 on the way back to the beach.

East Hampshire Green Party

Politics is going to eat into my paddling time over the next few weeks, but I thought that it was time to stand up and be counted. Maybe missing a few paddles over the next 100 days until May 7th will mean cleaner seas for myself and everyone else.
