Ambitions & Inspirations

 Headed down to Port Erin last night to catch up with Stu, Craig and Lee, who had paddled over from Scotland, and down the entire West coast of the Isle of Man yesterday.
 The lads were on great form, and they are doing some terrific paddling. Heading right round Britain, the trio are set to complete their trip comfortably inside their duration expectations.
 Had a text from Tim, a member of the Adventure Club, paddling round the Island over a couple of days, bet he got a stunning sunset off Kirk Michael yesterday evening too!
Tim is developing as a self-self-sufficient paddler, and heading towards his BCU leadership award this winter.
 Kitted out in their Montana finery, changing to Reed paddling gear for their open crossing to Anglesey this morning, the lads had a short sleep in preparation for another 40 nautical miles they will do today.
Unassuming and totally genuine, you'd have thought they were about to pop out for a morning stroll, to hear them chat as they packed away.

All the best for the rest of your trip!
