Winter Solstice Training Paddle

Well the water temperature has cooled off a bit, but the winter solstice started out at 16 degrees Celsius at 6:00 am this morning and only increased from that point.  I spent the day comfortably paddling in a short sleeve rashy wondering if we are skipping winter this year.

Another weekend training paddle spent paddling on flat water! We took off at 6:00 am with first light appearing on the horizon heralding a very calm day.  Not as spectacular sunrise this morning with the coastal showers receding away to leave us with another hot winters day.

39 kms paddling today as we looped around Mud Island from Shorncliffe.  We pushed the pace today and sat on over 9 kms/hr for a couple of hours which left us feeling like we had a good workout by the time we returned for lunch.  We took a diversion as per the images below - thanks to Jono and Gary D for keeping me company.
