On 7 February, following two days of dramatic weather in Victoria, including disastrous flooding in parts of Melbourne and regional Victoria, I set off from Torquay for a Sunday paddle.
Our launching spot was sheltered from the wind, but whitecaps were evident to the South-West as I looked towards where we were paddling.

I tried to concentrate on my forward stroke, but while I managed to get the right muscles to do at least some of the work, it would appear that those muscles are in as poor shape as the rest of them, as I still found it hard going in the persistent headwind.
