Anglesey - Friday: Rockpool-kayaks test-ride

Actually a rest-day/non paddling day was planned before the start of the Anglesey Seakayak Symposium tomorrow. But then Nico asked us to help. Nico is Dutch distributor of Rockpool kayaks and wanted to try out the Rockpools' latest design: the new GT - a high volume seakayak, fast and yet said to be easy manoeuvrable. This was too perfect an excuse to neglect, so we paddled today once more in the tidal race near North Stack. But this time not in our own kayaks but in 3 different Rockpool demo-kayaks: the Isel, the Alaw Bach and the GT. We swapped boots multiple times. I enjoyed paddling the Alaw and the Isel, the GT is a number to big for me.
