Mark_Schilling said:Well, as is usually the case, the winds have died down considerably and the forecast now calls for 10-15kt SouthEasterlies this afternoon and evening. That's more like it! Looks like we may not have such a bad weekend afterall.
If anyone wants me, I'll be on Rum Island! 8)

I headed out on the same trip as I tried 2 weekends ago; from Cordova Bay, out past Zero Rock to Kelp Reef, then around D'Arcy Island and back. I had set waypoints in my GPS for navigational beacons and notable rocks, so I had something to aim for and fine-tune my ranging skills at the same time (to ensure that I was not being delivered off-course by the effects of wind and current).
Here's a track log of the paddle:
The total distance was 24.856km. I headed out at 1:02pm and the total trip took 3:37. Not including a 14 minute rest stop to have a quick bite to eat, my average paddling speed was 7.314 km/h (about 3.94 knots).
