Mt Douglas to Ogden Point (August 12) (#59)

George and I set out from Mt Douglas Park beach (thanks to Monica for the drop off and pick up) at 9 AM and had a wonderful paddle along Victoria’s coastline. Conditions were sunny and calm and the current was with us as far as Clover Point. I had the Feathercraft Wisper on its inagural saltwater paddle and was very impressed. It had no problem at all keeping up with or ahead of the sirocco. It also rode the waves nicely and did not have any directional control issues. It was also nice to have such a light boat for beaching. I can see myself using the Wisper on regular day paddles…
