After 2 long weeks of stormy weather most of the Optimists have been showing withdrawal symptoms.
I have seen them in the bath tub in full paddling gear and paddle in hand looking at the running tap water with longing. There have also been reports of them taking up walking, jogging or yoga, which is not too bad.
Some of us braved the cold wet and stormy weather and did get some paddling done .
Today we finally broke the dry spell with an early morning outing, calm seas and small wave out at the rock.
Yossele shows how to surf with a delicate back, and the surfskis were out there too.
I cant imagine living in some countries where you have to stop
paddling in winter
How lucky are we to be able to paddle all year round
