Off to Burma... back April 4th

No local paddling for me for the next few weeks… I am heading off to Thailand and Burma this weekend for 2 weeks. I will be leading a trip to paddle and snorkel in the Andaman sea – Mergui Archipelago.

I am sure I shall post some pics on my return!

March 10th - Brentwood (#11)

I joined the VCKC paddle led by Dennis today. 14 of us set out from the beach by the Brentwood Bay ferry and paddled around Tod Inlet and then around to McKenzie Bight. We had a nice lunch on the beach and paddled back in light rain. A nice day’s paddle in calm conditions. Nice to meet a few new paddlers.

March 4 - McNeill Bay to Fisgard Light (#10)

Heike, John, Tony, Dennis and I set out from McNeill Bay (we were joined by Paolo who set out from Smuggler’s cove!) and paddled along the Victoria and Esquimalt waterfronts to Fisgard Light by Esquimalt lagoon. Conditions were good. I had a little bit of wind and used the spirit sail until Clover point. I was paddling the sirocco again. The currents were supposed to be with us both ways, but did not significantly hinder or help us either way.
