Downwind (but not really)

With the promise of west winds and waves I made the trek to Lake Erie in the hopes of some decent downwind conditions…but I’m starting to wonder if Lake Erie ever produces these ;). Instead I was met with knee high chop from 3 directions and random rogue waves bouncing off the bluffs. Once I was out I figured I may as well make the most of it, but it certainly was anything other than ideal. It was a slow slog, thats for sure. Will post this one in case I don’t get another chance at this event, but oy vey…what a mess. On the bright side however, I sat down at the 6km mark and enjoyed the sunset for awhile before continuing on – lol! Certainly not paddling for time on this one 🙂
