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.
We took a Rib Charter from Rye to Arundel in East Sussex yesterday. We have always wanted to run up The river Arun from Littlehampton to Arundel to have some lunch.
We arrived when the tide was flooding and followed a fishing boat in through the shallows which helped as he definitely had local knowledge. After 20 mins at 6 knots we arrived in Arundel where we moored up and headed in to town for a bit to eat.
The trip from Rye to Arundel return was 135 miles and we used 270 litres of fuel!!. On the return journey about 10 miles off Brighton we came across a wind farm test facility pic below for the new wind farm.
