Quite an expedition so far
"Well it's been quite an expedition so far here in the Philippines. Beautiful weather but challenging sea conditions. The team of two, was cut down to one after the first day, so I have been solo. The pakayak has handled itself remarkably in open sea conditions and loaded to the maximum with gear. A rudder has proved invaluable especially during crosswind conditions and 1.2m swells and cross chop. The camping has been amazing. Unfortunately Henry is the photographer and the drone and gopro footage we wanted to take could not happen. Here however are a few stats and photos of the trip so far.
Total distance 177 km
Longest crossing 15 km
Biggest swells 1.5 m
Highest winds 25 knots
Longest day 30km"
