Day before IronMan Canada - Kayaking on Okanagan Lake Nearing the end August 2010

"Kayaking on Okanagan Lake Nearing the end August 2010"
A few clouds 21°C A few clouds Wind: N 26km/h
Awesome waves to paddle on today lots of excitement avoiding being dumped, catching a surf with a 26km wind at my back on my return to Penticton. My friend Robin should have been there today, bigger waves and a lot more excitement than yesterday. A little weather report just to let you all know what it has been like recently. Like I have said we are in a cooling trend and heading to Fall weather. Still hoping for an Indian Summer so I can keep on kayaking. This kayaking season for me, started in February 9th this year at +3c which isn't too bad as long as there is no wind. The wind bites hard at near freezing temperatures and without a spray-skirt I have to choose my paddle days wisely to have some enjoyment. I added some photos and video from today nearing the end of August 2010.

Great day of kayaking the last day before IronMan Canada. Tomorrow may be too busy in town to get to the lake so thought I might sneak a paddle in, just in case I can not get my car through the roadblocks and crowds to the lake to put-in tomorrow. I am hoping my home location may give me a chance. The race is 3 streets West of my location so crossing the race to get to the other side of town (West side) may not be a possibility from here but if I head North to the lake I may have a chance. 7am the race begins and roadblocks will start tonight blanketing the town from end to end where the race will be ran and biked.
