Stage 1 - Caernarfon to Porth Oer

What an incredible start to the journey around Wales, with 31 testing miles under our belts and seeing a sight which is a once in a decade for even seasoned kayakers like Geth Roberts who we were very glad to have with us to experience the day.

After a lovely night with Mo and John from the Royal Welsh Yacht Club, we were met outside the Anglesey Arms by David Southern and Kylie Matthews from Sea Kayaking Cymru to start our epic leg - which turned our to be more than 30 miles! Dr David and Kylie joined stop in Trefor where we were met by our trusty road crewman, Oak and the the lovely Southern family.

With Geth at Porth Oer - 8pm finish

Leaving David and Kylie at Trefor, we went onto Nefyn with Geth Roberts, stopping for some much needed flapjack. With the seas still glassy we decided to make hay and made the final three-hour push to Porth Oer, where, we saw one of the rarest sites on these shores - a pod of Risso dolphins!

What a day that was. Today we are joined by Geth for the next stage from Porth Oer to Abersoch. We can't wait.
