Falmouth to Porthallow

Launch at Swanpool Beach in Falmouth, calm sea with grey skies and light offshore wind. Very easy paddling all the way to Porthallow, where the skies cleared and the sun came out. Wind changed direction to SW and increased to a force 4.

Even easier paddling on the way back due to the fresh breeze and following sea. We hugged the coastline for most of the trip home and the crossing of  The Helford River was quite choppy, but fun.  We saw two other serious kayakers and some fishing kayaks, "summer is a coming". All in all, a very enjoyable trip!
