First post

The last excursion, december 7 2008, was very short but extremely exciting, with the paddling across the turbulent waters flowing from the San Leonardo river mouth to the sea, creating something similar to a tidal race. Here is a picture of me paddling against the current, towards the river.
Thank you to Gabriele Melita for this picture.

With our friends Mirella and Tony, plus Barbara, Andrea and Peppe (all them three are collaborators or members of our company) we paddled about 3 miles from the mouth of the San Leonardo River to the mouth of the Simeto River. The weather was beautiful with calm sea and a light westerly wind. Many birds watched in the banks and along the beach: little egret, cormorants, sea gulls and other unidentified species.
