Ravenglass Seaquest

Last weekend I headed to the Lake District to meet with some friends for some walking and to take part in the Ravenglass Seaquest event.

On the Saturday, John and I managed to dodge the showers and climb a small hill that overlooks the Esk estuary.

The Ravenglass Seaquest is an orienteering event with canoes and kayaks that makes use of the Irt, Mite and Esk estuaries of west Cumbria. The day started with fine weather which soon deteriorated into rain driven by a strong southwesterly wind.

The event is now in its 7th year and organisation has recently been taken up by Copeland Canoe Club. Its a wonderfully social event with plenty of prizes being handed out for the winners of various categories.
