Social Distancing on the Sea

How’s this for Social Distancing. Miles from anyone and not a soul in sight. Just me, my boat and I! There was quite a stiff breeze blowing though so things were a little choppy in places. All good fun though and a way to stay sane in these times of uncertainty. Followed by some gardening,...

Sunny Surf Ski Session

Having worked loads of extra hours last week, I was owed a bit of time. So, when the sun came out on Wednesday afternoon and the wind dropped off I couldn’t resist finishing work an hour early so that I could get out for a lovely relaxing surf ski paddle on the estuary. I met...

Aberdovey Triathlon

Wind against Tide

One of the reasons we built a house here is that its such a good location for windsurfing. With 4 miles of sandy beach on our doorstep and plenty of Westerly winds and waves, the seafront from Borth to Ynyslas is perfect. But that isn’t all, we also have the more sheltered waters of the...
