The day finally arrived for me to pick-up my new kayak. It also came with pouring rain and horrendous winds chopping Sydney’s waters to bits. Still, that made having a coffee with the crew from Sydney Harbour Kayaks more inviting!
Of course the Fat Paddler is never one to let bad weather stop a paddle, so into the new boat and out into the wind for what turned into one of my hardest paddles yet. 5km felt like 50km, with 3 foot chop smashing the kayak and 30 knot winds playing havoc with every aspect of my paddle technique. Needless to say not too many pics today (and all wind-swept!). Probably would have been better to stay indoors!
