Paddling the Mawddach

With the heat wave continuing Pete from Aber-kayakers had organised a little paddle on the Mawddach Estuary. It was going to be a relaxed affair and just a chance to paddle somewhere different for a change. The plan was to meet at Penmaenpool for high tide at around 11am and then paddle downstream with the...

Estuary Perfection

Looking at the actual wind forecast you wouldn’t expect a windsurfer to get particularly excited about the wind for Saturday.

An Afternoon in Ironbridge

We had a day at the Commonwealth Games earlier this week. It was Anna’s idea to go see some of the action. So, when she mentioned it I suggested we do so with Steve and Biddy as they live out that way and we don’t see them often enough. A quick message and they said...

Wild Windsurfing

It may not look like a summer’s day in August from the video clip below but the water was warm, the air temperature was warm and the wind was blowing. All of which led to a top notch windsurf session off the seafront. Maxed out on a 5.7m all the time. A 5.0m would have...
