In late June we have done our first Raasay Rover trip of the year. We managed to circumnavigate the Island starting at Portree. On the first day we had to battle 1.5 metre swells coming in from the north. It was pretty hard going to cross from Portree to Raasay but we all made it in time to put up our tents and have a nice BBQ for dinner. The second day was really hard work. Even though we suppose to be sheltered by the island we managed to paddle into the wind pretty much all day. We had to finish a bit earlier and then have an easier paddle in the morning to get back to Portree.
