How does the A. acuta take to freshwater?
Gale force winds last week diverted us away from the Solway to try our hand at fresh water paddling. The picture shows our colour co-ordinated knee bump aids to edging and rolling very clearly. Easy launching; the tide is never out.
Ullswater, and the Autumn colours of Lakeland. Hard work into the wind, but what joy surfing back.
Perfect luncheon spot
Fun paddling, the boats enjoyed the choppy water, but all of us missed the tide and that sense you always get on the sea of maybe, just maybe, being able to paddle beyond the end of the World. The land imprisons a lake, there is always a shore.
