RNYC / Kilcreggan 30th October 2021

Club Day Trip
Steve, Geoff, Andy D, Edward, Zak, Andy R, Jessica & Chris
Wind S / SW 9 – 11mph, Showers very occasional sun

A simple day in local waters essentially planned for newer paddlers but in the event supported by others with more experience.

Departed RNYC pier approx. 1030 with 6 paddlers. Chat with MOD rib crew about our plans and need to stay clear of soon to be departing submarine from Faslane. Off Robert Ness we met up with Geoff and Andy who had departed from Craigendoran. Continued around Rosneath Point moving from fully sheltered water into a gentle SW wind, the departing submarine passing us in the main channel.

Lunch taken on the beach E of Kilcreggan Pier in the only strong shower of the day! Bonus in seeing 3 dolphins heading up the Clyde.

On the return we were overtaken by an incoming US submarine and its support tugs in the channel off Rosneath Bay. Geoff, Andy and Edward having broken away to return directly to their home beaches. The following wind and rising tide made a lovely paddle back

Total distance 16KM
