This trip is aimed to suit those with or aspiring to 3* sea qualification. It is not intending to be a training trip and moderate wind and waves will not worry us.
[4 Nov 18] Brisk SW winds are causing the sea state to offer a challenge. A paddle in the Ilfracombe area appears to be favoured since it offers some shelter and some interest. LW slack is around 14:00 which suggests that we may venture west towards Morte Point and then ride the flood back (Ilfracombe LW 13:11). Where we launch will depend on whether we want to get to/around Morte Pt and that will depend on the sea state.
[6 Nov 18] MSW reports 6-10ft surf would be too challenging around Morte Pt. Still reviewing options.
