We have to be in the water and paddling out to meet the sun, and it will be dark (please see photos at the end of this document).
Bring a head torch to see, and to wear at the beginning of the paddle. A kayak is considered to be a vessel, especially moving, so, a white light is required by law when paddling in darkness.
The water will not be serene, and perhaps a bit choppy 0.7M, but according to our resources, the winds are minimal, force 2 and the cliffs of Kalanka will protect us.
The swells will be around 0.5-0.7M in the open sea, but we may be protected by the breakwater/cliffs.
The plan is to paddle out of the port, or close to it, to see the sun.
Then, we will go towards Delimara/Marsaxlokk for a stretch and morning nibbles, then towards Pretty Bay and back in.
This will be a great way to start the weekend together and to see a beautiful sunrise.
We hope to be in by 8:30/9:00 am.
Please see below for pertinent event info, maps, Windfinder, and more.
Please bring the following equipment:
Your own kayak
Paddle and spare
Bilge pump or other water evacuation tool
Proper sun-protective clothing
Proper water protective gear, if needed
Food and snacks
Mobile or other recording devices and a way to protect them
Buoyancy aids, if needed
Sounds you may hear in the port:
A vessel altering its course to starboard shall indicate that manoeuvre by one short blast on her whistle. a vessel altering its course to port shall indicate that manoeuvre by two short blasts on her whistle.
