Ramsey Island and the Bitches

Cooking up lunch on Ramsey Island, having paddled there from the Bishops and Clerks rocks. Graham was cooking curry, which I’m not sure was the ideal stomach settler for the Bitches tidal rapid, which we visited next. Although the rapid was pretty mild compared to what it can be on Spring tides, there were some powerful eddy lines, which some of the group hadn’t experienced before. Ferry gliding across the entire Bitches rapid (it’s a series of linked rapids, about 500m wide) was successfully managed by the whole group, good stuff. We then broke out into the main flow of Ramsey Sound and rode the rolling waves all the way back to Whitesands Bay. The curry didn’t seem to help Graham’s stability on the surf landing, incidentally. But everyone was smiling, a great trip had been enjoyed by all.

All good.
