CSCC Reports 2015: Hastings - October 2015
Paul, Stephen and Dan paddled from Hastings to Camber Sands and back on 3 October. This was Paul's first CSSC trip and his first outing in a sea kayak. It was a real baptism of fire, because it was a 20 mile round trip, but he coped manfully. The weather was lovely for October (so good that Dan managed a swim at lunchtime). This is a great stretch of coastline for bird spotting and the highlights were turnstones, terns and oyster catchers. There were clearly plenty of fish - we regularly saw the silver flash of mackerel leaping from the water. Hastings has a bit of character, helped by the fact that it still has a working harbour with fishing boats. It also has remarkable 'talking' car park ticket machines, which had me in stitches. Our thanks go to Stephen for organising a great day out at the seaside.
