SATURDAY 20th AUGUST
I haven't been to the club for quite some time now but I decided to join up with Taran and the rest of the gang in Pembrokeshire. I arrived at Newgale camp site early Saturday morning, it was wet and windy, typical Glam Boaters trip weather. There was a strong southerly force 5-6 wind blowing so the decision was made to head on up to Newport sands out of the face of the wind.
SUNDAY 21st AUGUST
Another day and the sun is out and the conditions seem to have lightened a little, F3-4 south westerly. We make our way to Solva where it is buzzing with people and kayaks. The wind blows up the narrow harbour channel which doesn't vouch much for the conditions on the other side.
Big swells and blowing winds at the mouth of the harbour. After a look into the caves inside the protection of the natural harbour I was quite looking forward to the tasty conditions.
I was itching to get out an do some paddling so I ventured out of the harbour and around the cliffs to either side of the entrance while the group sat and had some lunch on the beach. I was tempted top paddle back to the camp site at Newgale on my own but didn't fancy the surf landing. Oh well Scotland to the Isle of Skye in a couple of weeks so I'm sure I'll get enough paddling done then.
