Today was the first 'official' launch of my new boat. Just a simple trip on known territory to get a real feel for the boat and what it's capable of. I decide to launch from the Knap Barry and aim for Penarth.
I paddle out to the point marked with a fixed buoy mainly fiddling with the outfittings and getting a feel for the boat.
With all that excitement I decide to stop off on the nice shingle beach at Sully Island, Oystercatchers clearing the way as I come in.
I make a perfect landing without touching a single rock and stop off for a for a cuppa coffee and a Snickers.
Race rounding Nells Point.
More fun in the waves before making a landing back at The Knap and reminiscing on a great day. I can't wait to get it back out, role on the weekend!
