Borth Wen to Treardur Bay - 14th March 2010

Second day of the NWSK SoSM.

Initially paddled out of the bay by myself and rounded Rhoscolyn beacon. Appreciable ebb tide and the NW wind made it a bit lively on the outer end of the islands. Paddled back into the bay to see what everyone else was doing and teamed up with Graeme, Chris and Andy to paddle to Treardur.

Fairly hard work going N against the tide and wind (F4?). Confused water/small race at Rhoscolyn Head/Maen-y-Fran.

Landed in small surf at Treardur for lunch. Return paddle much more pleasant as wind seemed to have dropped slightly and we had bright sunshine.

Explored the islands of Rhoscolyn Beacon - a few seals, lots of Oystercatchers.

Lunch at Treardur

Warm sun!
