Cumbrae Trip Day 3 – Great Cumbrae Kayak Race Report

Day 3 of our trip to Great Cumbrae started with sunny spells and a stiff breeze. Not ideal conditions for the Great Cumbrae Kayak Race as far as I was concerned, but not too rough that I wouldn’t be able to give it a go either. I was up early so went out for a...
