As soon as I got to the water's edge with the Nordkapp and saw Chris having great fun on his surf ski I knew I had made the wrong decision.
With not too many options because of the wind and tidal direction I paddled out to the jagged rock outcrop of Carreg Gafeilliog where hopefully I could get some shelter in the numerous channels between the rocks.
It was quite like paddling in a maze and after a few wrong turns I was paddling back out from the shelter into the wind again.
There were small standing waves starting to form on the one edge of the rocks so at least I was going to have a bit of a surf even if it was in my sea kayak.
While I was playing in the overfalls the wind increased and it was a bit of a slog paddling back to Porthsele into the wind. No distance covered but at least I am finally here on a holiday although the forecast for the next few days is not too good, British summer hey!
