This trip is intended to ease back gently into sea paddling or introduce anyone whose not experienced the delights. There will be the option to step through all the necessary drills for more adventurous paddles. There will also be time for a paddle around to Old Harry Rocks.
The forecast is looking good. The winds are very light and variable although mostly westerly. Some sunshine and perhaps a drop of rain. The tidal stream will be southerly towards Old Harry with LW at approx 16:00 on springs. This does mean that there will be a strong ebb around Old Harry but that's not a problem.
Lets meet at the NT Knowle Car Park BH19 3AQ as usual at around 10:00 aiming to be on the water at 10:30 ish.
