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')

Back to the sea: Chichester Entrance

 A typical bunch of sea kayakers preparing to do battle with the December seas?
 The backwards float off the beach, the best launching technique into a choppy sea.
 Enjoying the others' discomfiture of getting on dry.
 A spot of pumping out for anyone unlucky enough to take a wave onboard.
The West Pole, a mile off Chichester entrance, little surf today.
I love these watery winter skies, but the sun finally broke through.
We had to time our departure from the lunch spot to avoid the youth fleets training in the harbour.
 Relaxed launching in calm water...... floating out before slipping in.
Liz too was enjoying the sun and sand.
