Paddling (Albany XPD Training WE) 3:30:00  19.0 km (11:03 / km)
A good transition of about an hour. Did not feel like eating anything as I had been eating enough on the bike.
Ant and John had laid out the sevvies ready for us, and at that stage we realised Robin and I only brought 5 seats and footrests and not 8! Our stop in Balingup to pickup the Sevvies from Murrray's parent's farm had us more concerned about leaking boats and we pumped up about 6 to find 4 good ones and went through lots of valves. We had 4 in our mind and not double that.
But in true xpd fashion, we made do. John already wasn't paddling with his sore knee from the walk, so we put 7 on 3 sevvies and 1 on the endorfin ski. Tim, Ant, Janet on one with one seat, Mark and I on another, Nancy and Todd on another, Robin our navigator on the ski.
The paddle went well - a 10kt SSW headwind was no problem. We paddled down the Kalgan, stopping a few times to pump up pontoons. Then across Oyster Harbour, and then out on the ocean down Middleton beach to our accommodation and pickup car. Amazingly, with a bunch of weekends spent in the rain this one in Albany hardly had more than a few dustings.
