Pre-breakfast solo training paddle – 30km, Minehead to St. Audries and back

Another nice training paddle, this time increasing the distance to 30km, in preparation for my challenges of Lundy or Isle of Wight. Got an early start, on the water at 5.45 to get 2+ hours before high water forced a stop. Just a light wind in the bay and a small swell (0.5m) made an interesting run past Dunster and a careful landing at St Audries. On the way back had wind against tide, with a little chop, but a strong tide to help with the pace.

Had planned to get on the water by 5am, but just couldn’t get out of bed at 4am, not bad though – 4 hours paddling, 30km traveled all before breakfast – love those early windless starts! – see the Trackpod route
