CCKA Family paddle 5 March 2011

Another beautiful spring morning for a paddle down the Bann.  Five open boats and two kayaks took to the water at the University watersports centre.

Robin Ruddock as usual was a fantastic guide for the trip, pointing out all the local areas of interest enroute and a quick lesson or three in local wildlife identification.

The water was calm and not a wisp of wind – hard to believe winter was just a few weeks away.

We stopped of for coffee just along side the path which runs to Portstewart beach it wasn’t long before the natives popped past for a wee look see.  I was quietly worried that I would be talked into giving beginners lessons to the bunch but it was apparent they weren’t interested in paddling they were just nosey.

We continued a bit further to the coastguard cottages where the trip ended 😦

cant wait to get out again!! Oh I mean tomorrow – 2/3 star training at Portrush !! Its great to be back at it!!
