After a week of wild windy weather we were surprised that Saturday 15th November turned out to be dry, warm, calm and at times sunny. 10 paddlers were on Ringstead beach ready to launch at 10:30 There was some residual swell which added some interest to quite benign conditions.

Ian was paddling his new Rockpool – his third – let’s hope this one lasts a lot longer than the last one!

It was great to catch up with everyone and as we paddled across towards White Nothe it was calm enough to chat.

Easy conditions across Ringstead Bay

White Nothe produced some interesting rock hopping.

Durdle Door was calm enough for everyone to paddle through

But Tony managed to find some excitement!

Ken managed to become airborne on the little wave at the entrance to Lulworth Cove...
