'Nuff Said

Well, another Thursday evening "practice" in St. Philip's has come and gone. The day started with a brisk NW wind that had whitecaps forming on the bay. It was beginning to look like a good evening on the bay. But, as is often the case lately, the wind dropped off completely by the time we hit the water. There were, however, long rolling swells producing some good clapotis in areas so we took advantage of that. For some reason, there was not a "whole lotta practicing goin' on" tonight. We bobbed, we chatted, we rolled and we scooted in and out of the swells.

Thanks to Brian, Tony, Clyde and Hazen. Hazen, by the way, was sporting his brand spankin' new drysuit and this was his first salt water paddle since September! Now that he has his drysuit, there's no stopping him now!!

Was tonight a write-off? By no means at all. Look at the picture above and you'll see why? A beautiful evening on the water, good friends and an obvious love of paddling. 'Nuff said!!


  1. I don't know about you Sean but I had an excellent practice. Outside of a few rolls I didn't get wet but spent most of the evening practicing paddle strokes.

    Tony :-)

  2. True true. I was trying to pay attention to my fwd technique and just before we left I started working on my bow rudder. I'm not sure why but for some reason I just didn't want to get out of the boat last night. Rolling was fine but I didn't want to leave the seat, so to say!!
