I have been paddling in January but this weekend was the first paddling trip for the season. The ice is almost all gone. We carried our kayaks about 200 meters from our club house and we had to paddle between some ice floe to reach open water but it wasnt that hard. We had a really nice trip to Valö in Göteborg archipelag. Valö is an island and also the outer harbour for our kayak club. On valö is a lighthouse and some cabins located. The cabins are available for the members to stay in over night.

We had a nice evening paddling to Valö

The lighthouse gives good protections from winds from north

I have started to use a Braca IV Wingpaddle last year.
Johan is pulling his kayak on the ice. The ice is pretty thick the last 50 meters.
