Paddlers: Stewart, Adele, Vee, Boo, Geoff, Robin, Chris (Lomond) and Colin

Weather: Cold and Grey. Little wind.

Report: At last the weather relented and a dry, wind free morning was promised. The cold however, was an ever present making gloves essential and even then still freezing fingers and toes. A gentle paddle from Luss took us over to  Inchvannach where an attempt to fix Boo’s right footrest was made.

From there some of us pushed on to Inchmoan and the big sand beach.

Heading for Inchmoan

However, given the possibility of significant wind, others decided that a trip round Inchconnachan was a better plan. As a result the lead group was summoned back from Inchmoan and we all eventually met up on a beach on Inchconnachan for a hot drink and mince pie.

During the break the forecast strong wind got up briefly and then completely disappeared, leaving and almost windless return trip via the narows.

The Return

For unknown reasons (or alternatively because of the great company) the final paddle along the shore was extremely enjoyable. Overall, allowing for the pain in the toes, it was a really good trip.
