Hilbre Island – Sunday 18th February by Anthony Vaccaro

20 + paddlers made the trip today including Gareth’s Improvers group.   A good turn out after the poor weather recently luckily the weather was better than most of us expected today.

Light to moderate breeze, dry ,sunny intervals.  All coped well.

No Tide race or overfalls to play in this time and only one seal bothered to greet us on the end of Hilbre Island.

Unfortunately, due to an injury Mark Pawley had to sit out the paddle.   Fortunately for the rest of us, Mark kindly made Lots of tea and coffee in his paddle bus for anyone who wanted it on our return.

Thanks Mark and all for a good paddle.
