With the air temperature in the 40’s and no wind it felt like a spring day here in Jamestown, Rhode Island. I launched from my familiar Jamestown site, Bay Voyage Inn. I did a 6 mile Sakonnet River tempo paddle yesterday, so today was an easy paddle to get use to paddling in bumpy waters of Jamestown that most of our races include. There was no wind but that rarely makes the leg from Bull Point to Mackerel cove flat and today was no different. So with just enough refractory waves and incoming tide, the conditions were lumpy on this leg and flat for the rest of the paddle. So just right for a winter paddle without worrying about capsizing in the 30 degree waters.
Surfski Gear for Today’s Paddle
With a garage full of skis, for today’s paddle I chose the Think Evo 3 Ultimate, that you can find on the links below. I also chose from the selection of paddles I own, one of my Braca’s XI’s, 705’s, that you can find from the link below. From my performance PFD’s closet, I used my Vaikobi Ocean Performance PFD. Stay tuned, more to come from SurfskiRacing.com.
