Day three

A fun day of paddling; flying along with a big tail wind, surfing from wave to wave. Eleven knots distance done in three and a half hours paddling (with a 20 kn wind building to 30). The boat behaved herself exceptionally well. A joy to surf, and handled the rough following sea well.

A big thank you as well to Shiro Ose of Grandstream kayaks in Japan, for the Raven paddling pants he gave me awhile back. I have been living in them for the duration if the trip. Paddling, cooking, hiking and wading all while dry and warm. Feels great to be comfortable in the near freezing rain and gale force winds!
