Back on home waters the plan was to simply paddle out on the last two hours of the ebb to Steep Holm and return on the commencing flood. Forecast looked good, mid way between spring and neap tides. I met up with Taran at the busy Penarth waterfront.
We parted our separate ways just before landing, my van being half way up the hill. Penarth lifeboat were just launching as I hauled my boat up the jeti. I had a quick chat with one of the crew, apologising for calling them out a couple of weeks ago.
14.30 nautical miles in total. A totally unexpected start to the trip made this one a trip to remember. Absolutely perfect day on the water.
