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')

Selsey, westbound race, 4.5m tide, no wind

 Selsey is underrated as a play spot, the race works in either direction even in calm weather if the tide is big enough.

Thanks to Dave for the photos

Greenland- Ice II

The ice comes and goes in mysterious ways, driven by wind and tide. We only just got off the water in time in this bay. Another few moments and we would have been separated and crushed.
Next morning it had mostly vanished leaving us free to paddle again. Just checked on Ilulissat weather -14C today and forecast -20C next week. July seems a long time ago.
