Different boat-different day

It's cool today, I spent a lot of time slipping and sliding on my way in on the bike but I finally got to the boat shed.
I Paddled the Rapier to London Bridge and back and it was rather cold.
It took 74minutes to paddle the 4.5miles against the tide and came back 
on the flood. The Rapier is a difficult kayak to paddle well, it feels like 
you use a lot of abdominal muscles to edge the boat and wash hanging is
completely different than in the Knordkapp. Anyway I am off to the pool 
now to warm down and get in a 1km swim.
