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')

IOW circumnavigation

Last weekend we made an anticlockwise circumnavigation, starting from Lee on Solent. Reeth Bay just after St. Catherine's, with 31 nm under our belts, proved to be the perfect spot for the night. Leaving only 24 miles for the Sunday. Tides with us all the way and ideal conditions with just the right amount of movement in the water. Plenty of time to enjoy the scenary and paddling, rather than the head down slog that this trip can become.
