We had a late start this morning as we knew that both tide and wind are against us together with swell. We got to the beach at about 11am to launch. I went first and ended up swimming. My second attempt was successful and we both started to paddle at about noon. Soon we realised that the wind was too strong and our progress in the last half hour counted 500 metres. We decided to go back, which took us 2 minutes to Reach the launching spot again. The decision was made with the view that we would make 10 km today but would be absolutely shattered, while tomorrow the conditions should be better and we should make better progress.
The landing was straightforward and successful for both without swimming.
So back in Brighton we are.
