Report: 20 members ventured out on a weekend with a forecast of wind and rain. Hugh’s sea kayak group enjoyed a paddle over to Port Ban on Inchcailloch where Hugh demonstrated that quality catering is quite possible. They then travelled on to Inchconnachan where they met up with the Young Beginners camping group.
After the main group departed, the sea kayakers went Wallaby hunting and were rewarded with a sighting. Meanwhile camp was being established and dinner cooked.
After dinner the sea kayakers departed for the long trip back to Duck Bay whilst the main group embarked on a paddle aroundInchmoan including a visit to the castle atInchgalbraith. During the trip Stewart joined us for the evening. We eventually got back to the camp about 9.30 and had more to eat and drink around the camp fire.
During the nighjt there was torrential rain whcih stopped just as we got up at 8am. Tim and Robin arrived around 9 because of the terrible forecast of wind and rain. However, although we had both, neither made the return trip unpleasant.
We were back at 11.30 and the sun shone as we loaded the cars and trailer. Another very successful canoe camp. Thanks to everyone involved.
