Below is a virtual tour of the racecourse created via Google Earth Studio.
I left again from Lowry Waterfront Park and used the paddle across to Boulder Island as my warm-up. Below is the view from the parking lot with my kit almost ready to go. I had my camera mounted on the rear left action mount of my board. The one that is just in front of the rear bungees.
I had taken on a few Saturday clients so I was up early to ensure that I would have enough time to make it home to clean up before heading into the clinic.
Below is the view of the water as I approach the shoreline. Looking pretty glassy!
The water was glassy and with the sun rising in the east over the top of Eagle Mountain things looked idyllic as I made my way over to Boulder Island.
Here I am getting my GPS in order before I set out on the course from next to the dock at Boulder Island.
And below is a still shot as I set off for the north 5-knot buoy marker. Good thing I had been practicing my buoy turns the week before. Unfortunately, I ran out of memory space again so I didn’t capture any of the turns. Fortunately, with the rear-mounted camera, I wasn’t aware that my camera stopped recording so there wasn’t any interruption to my paddling. Though I was hoping for footage of my buoy turns and from Deep Cove, especially passing underneath the Deep Cove Yacht Club dock and the Deep Cove Government Dock. Next time I guess. And post paddle I was able to figure out how to free up more memory for my camera. But see below for a time-lapse video of the footage I did capture before running out of memory.
Below is my recorded route from Google Fit‘s activity tracker.
And my statistics from Google Fit.
If you made it this far here is a time-lapse video of my departure for Lowry Waterfront Park and paddle over to Boulder Island.
