Time to put on the sensible head, and go and do some work. The sea kayak festival on Bute was an event for women paddlers. I still can’t get used to the idea of an even for women only, and probably wouldn’t attend one myself as a participant, but I have to say that everyone seemed to have a good time. Women got out on the water, many for the first time in years and others with little prior experience of paddling. A total of 30 participants and at least 8 contributors enjoyed the drizzly weather outside followed by the good food and entertainment inside.
