Easter weekend

Time to get the Tahe outside while opportunity, boat wrangling services and weather window coincide. Feels faster than the Isel with the GP and absolutely solid on edge. I had to remember all about weathercocking - not an issue with the Isel.

 Boy it was cold though.
After a couple of rolls a hood was a necessary addition.

Now you see me..

Now I'm just another seaweed covered rock.
Looking forward to a journey soon and, when the sea temp rises a little, applying the rolls in conditions.


  1. Les, a skull cap is a must around here in Newfoundland this time of year; we still have ice cubes in the water *lol*. In fact, I wear a helmet over my skull cap to prevent as much water as possible from entering. Even then a few rolls must be followed up with some paddling to warm up.

    Even a few rolls are a must to acclimatize in case of getting knocked over if paddling now.

    Tony :-)

    1. Hi Tony - it must be about 7 or 8 degrees in the 'hot spots'! and we don't even have any icebergs over on this side of the pond. Deceptive when the sun shines, unless you roll as a matter of course. When I paddle the Isel with a hood and helmet I am always more comfortable than with the tuilik.

      It's all good!
