With NO METRO at Hillarys today my plan for an ocean paddle was blown out of the water but with the cricket on I went and parked at Banks Reserve instead. I had about an hour and a half to kill before the 2pm gate line up so paddled all the way to the Narrows and back. I forgot to take the water out of the back of the car so stopped off at the beach once I got to the Narrows, drank all the water in the tap, went for a swim then paddled back.
I'd set the VP pace to 9kph and was holding at 9.1kph at the turnaround but had a slight breeze against me on the way back. After passing the Windan Bridge I checked and saw I was 23m behind so upped the pace back to Banks to just scrape in 2secs ahead of Mr VP.
After lining up for an hour at the gate to get undercover seats then watch the Scorchers go down to the Suxers I went and bought a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake for $10 to celebrate, well, nothing. Mmm, ice cream.
