Dove Step 2 – day two

  

Daily distance: 13.28 miles 
Duration: 04:41:36
Cumulative distance: 25.17 miles
Weather: Overcast, sunny spells, 9 degrees, 7mph south easterlies
Sea state: 3, some rough. No capsizes. No vomiting! 
Best birds: Yellow Wagtail and Sedge Warbler. 
DOVE STEP 2 – KAYAK LEG – DONE! 
Much calmer today in terms of both the elements and the team. No constant buffeting from the wind. No capsizes. No vomiting. 
We did however have to contend with two river mouth crossings; the Deben and the Orwell. As well as this we crossed the shipping channel for Harwich and Felixstowe ports.
So although Mother Nature was kind today we wrestled with man-made peril! 
It was an honour to paddle the channel crossing equivalent distance with Kurt Finch, Stu Moore, Andrew Goodrick and Ed King
With thanks for making the first leg of our 700 mile triathlon a success. 
Now driving with Ed Waterston, cycle leg team leader, to Dover. We make the ferry crossing in the wee hours and the first days cycling is upwards of 100 miles! 
Please follow our journey via this blog, support our fundraising and wish us well! 
Onwards – for Turtle Doves

    As I always remind the other half – Drive on the right!! Remind each other when you’re tired or setting off from a rest stop. Good luck with the French and stay safe.
