December 25th, Samara Costa Rica

Well - one more post from an Internet cafe in samara Costa Rica!
Monica and I went for a short paddle out of Samara Costa Rica. We went out from the beach to some islands at the edge of the bay. It was a bit windy and the sit on top "ocean kayaks" were not very hydrodynamic! probably paddled about 8 km
YTD 1098 km???

28 others and I joined a VCKC xmas paddle from the CFSA sailing club beach to Millstream and then for lunch at 6 mile - a bit of wind and rain, but fortunately none when we were loading or unloading boats. the worst was when we were in the pub!
8.5 km. YTD: 1090 km
BTW, this is the last paddle post of the year as we are off to Costa Rica today!

December 9th - Victoria Waterfront (#64)

George, Roscoe, Dennis and I set out from Cadboro Bay in snow, but this dissipated and turned into a fairly typical winter’s day – light drizzle, cool temps and 5–10 knots of wind. We had a nice paddle all along the shore from Cadboro Bay to Horseshoe Bay by Finlayson Point where we stopped for lunch. I managed to put the spirit sail up for a while on the way back across oak Bay.

Dec 2nd -pool session

The weather was so miserable today that I settled for a 2 hour evening pool session to practice my rolls and braces. Had fun rolling with my GP. I could definitely use some coaching on some more roll techniques and how to better set up for a static brace.
