Well, my first TR in a loooong time ! After6 months off the water due to my wrist injury, ( that they now think I might have to have an op on !!) I decided to make like a newbie and hit the water at Army Bay. Caught the outgoing tide so was pretty lumpy and a nice sides well as the wind filled in from the east. Flattened out as the tide changed but then the rain decided to set in as well ! By time I got off the water it was gusting 24kts at Tiri. No fish but it was more abt trying to get some paddle fitness going, pretty knackered now but will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning !

Hopefully everything will hold up and I can get some fitness up before the Rob Fort get together and the Viking Comp in November !

A bit stiff and sore overall, and the wrist is no worse than "normal" so all in all, not too bad !
