I went for a quick (45 minute) paddle out to Cadboro Point and Maynard Cove. It was a beautiful clear day and I could see all the way past Seattle to Mt. Rainier - 215+ km away! It was a nice way to finish the year's paddling off! The surf ski is definitely fast, averaging 7.5 kph for the paddle. My original plan was that I would have paddles a kilobyte of km, but I went a few hundred metres too far!
