A lot of my online paddling mates from the northern hemisphere have been whining recently about Winter’s intrusion on their paddling, the freezing over of lakes, and generally bloody cold conditions making kayaking difficult and uncomfortable. I wanted to prove to them that Summer in Sydney is just as tough, what with all the horrible sunshine, the balmy weather, the calm Harbour waters and the tough sandy beaches.
So I’ve made a short little video for you northerners. Nothing spectacular, just a little taste of gentle cruising on arguably the best harbour in the world. A few waves, a bit of sun, a little splash amongst the rocks, and frolicking Sydney-siders playing water polo in harbour pools. I’m telling you northerners, it’s bloody tough down here! Cheers – FP
