Loe Beach to Swanpool Beach

Wind, waves, rain and fun were the ingredients of this kayak trip, from Loe Beach on the Truro River to Swanpool Beach in Falmouth. The wind was blowing at 20-22 mph most of the time with the occasional stronger gust to keep us on our toes. Between Pendennis Point and Black Rock was the most interesting with sizable swell helping to keep our focus.

Although not one of our longest journeys at 12.1 miles, we took four and a half hours to complete, with most of that taken by the outward journey.
