I name this ship...

We'll after a bit of faff, we got to launch the kayaks on Loch Lomond before the New Year and the Team had a great time with seasoned pro kayaker, Peter 'The Inuit', who kept us right and alive.

'Eskimo' Pete
We launched from Luss and went for a journey around the islands and stopped off for lunch on Wallaby Island but saw none of the inhabitants.   The water was nice and calm, and we cracked on for the other side of the loch, finding Ross Point and another nice place to stop for soup and a sarnie.

Just why you bought that helmet!
Bill had his GoPro out and there may be some footage once he downloads it and makes a movie.   We had a bit of nav to do due to poor vis on the water but we managed to keep things simple and avoided any catastrophes on the outing.

All in, a very successful day out; surprisingly, the hands were not too cold despite the water and lowish temperatures.  A good CPD day on the water and Bill and Craig are due to get out on the open canoes in early course in prep for a forthcoming assessment.   Despite the rain, we all had a grand day and there will be much more of it to come...St Kilda be warned!

Which way home?
