In October 2010 Chester and myself from Absolute Adventures organized a circumnavigation of Milos, that well known sea kayaking island in Greece, to raise money for Jersey Hospice and Centre Point Trust.
A total of 30 kayakers, from Jersey, headed towards southern Greece for the last week of October and we were blessed with some excellent weather at the beginning of the week, followed by some more entertaining conditions.
Sulphur Mine on the east coast of Milos. A great spot for a break and a swim, even in October.
Cooking porridge on the west coast of the island, after a night of violent storms. Tents were flattened, sea kayaks blown along the beach and the night sky lit by lightening storms.
Kleftico. The south west corner of the island with a superb range of arches and stacks.
The final day along the south coast. Clouds of this size produce entertaining squalls!
Sarah proving that even after a night on the beach it is possible to look reasonably glamorous.
On the north coast of the island. Ideal conditions for exploring the geological features.
In October 2011 we are returning to Milos again with the aim of raising more money for these two charities so if you are interested in helping to raise funds whilst paddling in one of Europe's great sea kayaking destinations why not get in touch. Contact myself for further information and consider heading south this autumn.
