Took my brother-in-law to Point Atkinson today for his first kayak session. Actually he has paddled before with an inflatable kayak that is so stable you can almost stand on the side and it won't tip. Put him in one of the Delta 17's. Not quite as stable! Forecast called for light variable winds but it turned out be 21 knots SE at Sandheads. There was about a 2 to 3 foot swell at the Point against a falling tide which created a bit of rip. He did pretty good I must say. No misfortunes. This should make up for the times he took me skiing down double black diamond runs when I was just learning!
