Tuesday, 19.07.2016 Day 17 60,7 km 5.35 to 17.30 h N 53.40797 W 10.18442 Chapel Island, Slyne Head I really liked to sleep a bit longer this morning, but at 4.30 h two stray dogs were doing a show outside my tent. They probably didn’t like me here on their private beach? Shut up, this […]

Fri 15.07.2016 Day 13

Friday, 15.07.2016 Day 13 No paddling Bay behind Clogher Head The forecast for today raised unfortunately to 15-25 knots in the morning, and to 20-35 knots around lunch and later, though nicely south-west. Maybe a mistake, but I decided to give it another rest day, as it was also dense fog all morning and really […]

Wednesday, 13.07.2016 Day 11 No paddling Garnish Bay Long Island A good decision to stay put today, no reason to bash into a 15-20 knots nw headwind and according bumpy seas. And I got my loved Kokatat Expedition dry suit delivered today right at my beach! Well, I had to paddle over the gap to […]
