New Years Paddle – 1st January 2018

4 of us met at North Berwick – Tim Gibson, Katerina Stein, Rob Burgess and myself. We ended up putting in from the lifeboat slip as two folk used kayaks from the NB club store.

After hearty New Year greetings to the NB skiff rowers we set off down to Sea Cliff. Weather bright but cold. Brief stop at Seacliff for mulled wine and Tim’s banana cake. Returning through the skerries Tim & myself threaded through to the little harbour directly from seacliff beach without going out to sea!

We were treated to a lovely double rainbow over the Bass rock on our return.

Katerina and myself got off the water up the steep slip immediately adjacent to NB harbour- not done that before either!

Great short trip for the new year. Congratulations to Katerina who made the trip by train and returned by bus with all her kit ( minus kayak).

Happy paddling in 2018 everyone
