The group was a mixed bunch with a first timer on the sea to another with over thirty years of paddling experience.
Setting off from Roa island lifeboat station and then skirting around foulney island.
Blackpool and Snowdonia could be seen in the distance.
The large group of seals could be heard calling from there haul out on the south end of walney.
As we then crossed the channel, the Barrow Tamar class life boat passed us, they were out on there Wednesday training session.
Then we stopped of on the groyne for a break and a stretch of legs.
We then we headed back passing the seal colony giving them enough space as not to disturb them, as usual the odd seal would get curious and follow behind the sterns of the boats.
Then passing Piel island with a fantastic view of the Cumbrian mountains in the distance we landed back on Roa island.
Then packed up and some of us headed on to Roa island Boat club for a cooling drink.
