My Sea Kayak (B)log

Welcome to my Sea Kayak (B)log: I log all my Sea Kayak trips on saturnbull rather than use a paper log. This is also makes a good repository for some of my photographs, taken whilst out and about on the water (I've been known to take a few!). I hope you find it interesting and informative. If not then tough!

Liverpool Tides for 09/06/2023 BST M 03:27 8.67 HW 10:29 1.75 LW 16:01 8.05 HW 22:50 2.35 LW   Penrhyn Mawr (PM) floods about 3:30 hours after HW Liverpool. Consequently, it was already flooding from about 07:00 (03:27 +03:30 = 06:57). As we were setting off from Porth-y-Post at 09:15, well, it would be rude...

The weather forecast for Wednesday was not at all good. Si and I went and took a look at Trearddur Bay and we were not impressed. Very windy, Rain showers, big seas and flat broken waves. Fine if you fancy being bongo'd sideways constantly; but neither of us did. So we chatted to the...

2023-01-29 Trearddur Bay

Sunday, the weather was not looking too promising. The forecast stated conditions would deteriorate with strong winds increasing throughout the day. So, after a hearty breakfast in the Paddlers, we decided to head for Trearddur Bay. Initially, we talked about heading around the coast towards Rhoscolyn, but soon after setting off from the beach,...

Saturday morning, I met up with Si, Keith and Ashley for breakfast in a little cafe at Valley. The reason for having breakfast here instead of in the Paddlers, was that Anglesey Outdoors and especially the Paddlers was heaving! If we'd had gone to the Paddlers, we would have been waiting for a very...

2023-01-27 Stacking It

2022 was a bit of a weird year for me. It started off fairly normally, but from July I was increasingly busy with some family bereavements. Apart from my IOW circumnavigation and the Oban Sea Kayak Race which had been previously pencilled in on the calendar, if I did get any time to go...
