Last kayak escort trip of the season two guys from Eastbourne paddling for a cancer charity. Course plotted we set off from Rye Harbour at 06:30. With the kayak on board we headed round to folkestone which took 30 mins. We unloaded the kayak and the guys set off.We plotted a course taking into account the tides and wind with an estimated time of arrival at Cap Gris Nez in France after 4 hours.The guys met some serious wakes from the container ships. Photo below shows a 3 meter wake. The kayak is 22ft long and struggles to get over it!! You can see the white cliffs of Dover in the distance.Four hours later they touch down in France. We over took 3 swimmers and 1 big rowing boat who where also crossing at the same time.This was the last of 12 kayak crossings this summer. Looking forward to next season already.
