I arrived on Anglesey on Tuesday, and have been having a few days rest while some bad weather passes and Mike at Rockpool repairs a bit of damage I did to the bow of my kayak during a foggy landing back near Great Yarmouth. Brilliant after sales service from Rockpool – thanks Mike.
While here, I met John Willacy (who designed the Taran and had used it to break many records). Thanks for all the useful advice John – much appreciated.
On the paddle up here from Aberdesach, my shoulder was causing me quite a lot of pain, but fortunately, I met John Perrot, an osteopath (who was collecting a lovely looking Taran 16), and he did some sort of adjustment to my shoulder which made it feel a lot better – thanks John.
Hopefully, my shoulder will be OK when I start paddling again, but I’ve decided against the big crossing to the Isle of Man, and will be going the long way round.
I know I need to get a move on, but don’t want to make it any worse. Anyway, it’s an early start tomorrow to catch the tide to paddle round the lovely north coast of Anglesey.
