We fair skelpit across The Tan,

 We set off from the lighthouse on Little Cumbrae in a NE direction.

 The NW wind meant we were on a beam reach...

 ...and we found paddle sailing very much to our taste as...

 ..we fair skelpit across The Tan at 10-14km/hr, without breaking sweat!

 It was a wonderful experience to have the cold wind and spray in our faces and the low winter sun...

...on our backs. We were bound for the Eileans in Millport Bay...

...where it was near high tide and so the delightful little sandy beach was covered. We hauled the kayaks out onto the sea weed covered rocks for a well earned rest.
