This past weekend was the West Cornwall Sea Kayak meet.. an informal gathering of sea kayakers from all over the country. It was excellent. Something like 80 paddlers from far flung corners of the UK showed up which was especially brilliant as we are out on a bit of a limb down here in darkest Cornwall so it does take a bit of effort to make the journey.. the reward however is some really world-class sea kayaking plus of course the opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Anyway, I’m really busy this evening and lacking inspiration for words so rather than butcher the topic completely a run down of the salient points would probably look something like “all profits to local charities, fog, rain, sun, terrific food, bit nippy at times for June, good fun, glad I took my wellies”. A really excellent weekend from organisers Rich Uren, Ben and Christian. From a paddling point of view, knowing the coastline around here very well I was interested in ‘playing’ rather than making journeys… so with that in mind I left my decent camera at home and instead took a cheap waterproof compact that I can drop very quickly when I need to. The picture quality is truly bloody awful so I’m going to point you to some superior bloggage over on Mark’s excellent site here. However if you are inclined to stick around just a moment longer.. here are some snaps:
There, that’ll do. Cheero!
