More Paddling Practice and Another Rescue 14/04/2009

With it being a mid morning high tide and with the weather having improved considerably from yesterday, the whole family descended on Porth Clais for more paddling practice for Bobby, my youngest son Harry to do some gardening and my better half Tracy to be official photographer.

A little bit of white water again to start and then a paddle out to the harbour entrance in a boat free stretch of water.

Paddling out past the shelter of the harbour wall there is a nice little swell, ideal for Bobby to get used to the feel of his boat.

On returning to Pencarnan I was just about to go for a last paddle before returing home for a couple of days when a SAR helicopter appeared and headed towards Ramsey Sound.

Grabbing my camera I ran over to the cliff path expecting to see the helicopter disappear, but it stayed in the area for well over half an hour hovering over the Ocean Ranger, one of Ramsey Island boat trip RIBs. For a full report of the incident click here and scroll down to 14/04/2009.
