Gower / Stratford

Despite wild weather forecasts and torrential rain on the Friday, Mercia set up camp on the Gower peninsular and enjoyed some reasonable surf, good company and even some sun whilst the Midlands was drenched. A change from Croyde the beach was massive and quiet enough that you could find a spot to surf without fear of running over people. We even dragged Andy and a couple of mates out.

Late September and with summer setting in we paddled at Stratford in the sun. Bob led a group over the two weirs and we had plenty of beginners shooting their first weir, forwards and backwards. Marion also took to hugging a rock on the second weir.
