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')
Monday, 3 March 2014
It was not a gusty day, the wind blew pretty steadily and pretty hard. I had expected F4 on the way out and F5-6 on the way back with the odd swirling stronger eddy. The Met. office define gusts as sustained windspeed for 3 seconds, but the wind had obviously not read this definition.
(later found prolonged bouts of F9 recorded on Bramblemet during our paddle back)
