Dan and I went for a morning paddle out around Chatham and Discovery Islands. There was a brisk (15-20 kt) northerly wind and there were some fun waves in Baynes. We stopped for a snack in Rudlin Bay and then again to pick up some crab trap floats and line that had come ashore. It was a good workout, especially the return trip across Baynes. The Northern Lights Aleut-inspired definitely was a good paddle for the day. I could really feel it bit when I wanted some power. We averaged about 3.5 kt throughout.
It has been nice getting out 4 times in 4 days!
