2024-01-07 The Ormes

The first paddle on the sea of 2024 and it's been a while in coming. What with the weather being dominated by low pressure systems for much of the later part of 2023, I have not been on the sea in ages. With light winds forecast for once, I decided to get up early,...

Mull

2023-06-Mull

A Mull non-circumnavigation. The Si's trip to Mull to circumnavigate Mull by sea kayak, cut short by appalling weather and other unlikely events. After a long spell of fine weather, you may ask why were we going now? Well it's all to do with holidays of one "Si", the OT and the OTM, read...

2023-06-09 Stacks Trearddur

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...

Swellies

2023-04-05 Menai Straits

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...

2023-04-04 Bull Bay to Camaes

Meeting on a Tuesday for a change, Si and I decided to paddle the North Coast. We love paddling the North Coast of Anglesey, as there is always something to see. Not to mention the large tidal movements you experience along this stretch of coast. High Water (HW) would be at 11:16 am Liverpool,...

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,...

2023-01-28 Stacks Again

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...

2022-04-10 Trearddur Rhoscolyn

Unfortunately, some silly twit deleted the photos from today's paddle and the stupid GoPro wouldn't work either so I have for once no pictures from the day! The picture of me and the Etain above is courtesy of Kris. Thanks Kris! Paddled with Si, Kris, Ashley , Diane , Helen and Amanda. Conditions in...
