A short paddle today only about 14nm. However it was full on, with 18mh sw wind against the tide and us. All nice until Stackpole head, then the seas picked up and we were paddling though massive waves that made us feel tiny in our little boats. Then at st govans head it gets even bigger and messy. The sea is a boiling pot. This continues for about 5nm, then we turn the corner heading for sheep island and the sea starts to calm a little. As we pass sheep island the swell starts to follow us and we get a bit of a surf into watwick. Hard but enjoyable, sums up the paddle for me today.
