I went for a short solo paddle around the bay with the surf ski. There was a 10-15 kt east wind which slowed me down between Flower Island and Cadboro Point, but the rest of the trip was fast with a 7.3 kph average speed for the 6.5 km trip. It was pretty lumpy off Cadboro Point as the ebb current was building. It looked like there were some 4+ foot waves. It is so nice to be able to get out for a short paddle!
