10 degrees

 Gorge Scrambling - Saturday afternoon

 I got back on the midnight ferry from Heysham on Saturday morning, having spend a few days at Kendal Judo Club, and then the National Coasteering Charter meeting in Manchester, followed by a quick trip to north Wales and then head North again...
 Suited and booted is quality steamer wetsuits, and fitted buoyancy aids and helmets, we headed up a section of Ballaglas Glen, staying warm and having a lot of fun!!!
 Autumn colours, flumes, scrambles and plenty of challenge for those who wanted it : 0
See you all again for your next adventure soon!

Senior Club Night Paddle

 I got back to Ballabrooie in time to turn the gear round and head off to Niarbyl to meet the Senior Club for a night paddle. 
Stunning evening with lots of bio-luminescence creating 'sparks' streaming off the bow of the kayaks, and illuminating our wakes...
The senior club had already been out earlier on Saturday, with a trip out to Chicken Rock!! Good work lads and I understand some fine navigation too!! Plus another sighting of the Ginger seal : )

Sunday Adventure Club Day Trip

The Adventure Club Sea Kayak Trip - Day Paddle
 Setting off from Fenella Beach, Peel on the West coast of the Isle of Man, this morning, we paddled South with the current and mild breeze on our backs...
 A great day for a relaxing sea kayak trip down the stunning West coast of the Isle of Man, taking in the bright colours, looking over to the Mourne Mountains, clearly seen and looking quite close...
 Making best use of the weather, (always our goal) and enjoying the plentiful supplies of home-made treats which accompany the Adventure Club outings, whether by kayak or foot!! : )
Completing the delightful day with another Lifeguard kayak pool training session at Peel.

As the settled fine weather continues, we have a few more adventures planned this week.
See the Calendar for the mid-week sea kayak trip and evening 'night paddle'.
See you soon!

ps. Club folk please confirm your place the Xmas social with John or myself this week.
