It is difficult to imagine what kayaking we could do on the sea, when the Sunday morning forecast was for winds gusting up to 60 knots and a heavy swell. Fortunately there is an interesting feature which appears in the middle of the sand dunes, during very wet winters. A seasonal lake develops, although not every winter and it had probably been 15 years since I last paddled there.
Most of the Club members who met in the car park had no idea what they were letting themselves in far. Putting on paddling kit in a car park in the middle of the sand dunes is always going to be a talking point.
What followed though was an entertaining and memorable two hours.
Quite a group getting ready to leave
Walking across the sand dunes with kayaks is always going to attract attention
It wasn’t always easy walking
It is quite a large lake by Jersey standards.
Some people decided on alternative ways to launch
It was just a bit of fun when kayaking on the sea was out of the question.
One intrepid person even carried their stand up paddleboard
