Mosquitos are upon us

Really beautiful paddle last night, the river is starting to warm up and there is lots of green as the trees start to develop leaves. Unfortunately the warmer weather also means that the mosquitos have arrived in force. Last night was okay since the breeze kept them at bay but the few times the wind dropped of they quickly became outrageous.

This was the first time I’ve had a chance to try the Pungo 140 in a significant breeze and found that it does have a moderate tendency to weathercock. I am going to try moving more weight to the rear cargo compartment to increase the windage on the front and see if it balances out.

One of the calmer moments
