Dan and I went out for a morning paddle despite the chilly light snow conditions. There were some waves which made it a challenge to launch without a flooded cockpit. The wind was in our face on the way out which slowed us a bit and when we made it out to Cadboro Point, we saw that some waves were building - so we went and played for a while. I got a few excellent rides. We then went over to Jemmy Jones and the NW side of Caddy Bay. Level 6 mitts and MEC Hott Mitts definitely make paddling in these conditions practical. We were both quite warm with our Comfort Paddling Tuiliks over other clothing.
