A great and interesting paddle from Kimmeridge! Seven of us
went, and it was reasonably clear but very cold. Along the
coast under spectacular jagged cliffs to Warbarrow Tout,
then across the bay for a bit of a play in amongst Mupe
Rocks. Back across the Bay, and landed on a perfect beach
just behind Warbarrow Tout.
Nobby, ever the gourmet, cooked up a hot meal, and Hilary
had scones with cream and jam for afters! Rock hopping for
some on the way back to Kimmeridge. Then it got interesting!
Tim was surfing off the edge of the reef, capsized, and got
separated from his boat. Ken & Nobby quickly set up a very
efficient rescue. One group took Tim back to the cars to get
him warmed up, then they got caught by some big surf which
came in unexpectedly, one capsized, and two others then
capsized in the process of rescuing. All close to shore, so
able to land quickly. Lots of photographers on the shore
waiting to capture the surf and sunset, so got more action
than they anticipated! Everyone managed to get warm and dry.
So a great paddle along a spectacular piece of coast, rather
too much action at the end, and some lessons learnt!
