A merry group of 12 enjoyed sensational spring weather paddling the southern Moreton Bay channels to the northern point, Jumpin Pin of south Stradbroke Island. 20km total - tide assisted out and wind assisted back. Perfect!😁 ...

Got that spring step in my paddle.....
At last warmer weather, sunny day.... GO PADDLING!
Three joined Gary Forest for the ocean paddle off Mooloolaba and a coffee whistle stop.

Now that we have only a fortnight to go for winter it is a great time to check over your kayak before getting it ready for spring paddling. Check your safety gear as well. ALDI recently had plastic cutting boards and these make a great emergency repair with Gaffa tape if you end up with a hole in your kayak while on an expedition. ...

Day three was a well deserved rest day on Peel Island.
A few did a quick trip around the Island.
Lots of southerly winds.
Day Four our track shows our crossing to Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) and onto Amity Point caravan park. Hot showers 🚿 and eating out. Yum.

Day 2 was brutal. We started 6:30 am on the water. For most of us that meant at least a 4-4:30 am start.
The track below shows our epic 35km day. It was a beautiful early start on the water, rolling swell through the pin, bird life, then glassy still waters up the Canipa Passage. The tide and wind assisted us and we felt sheer joy and relief to have made it to Peel Island.
