Figure 8 Trip

GPS Trip Log - Mission Accomplished!
From the harbour .......

to the sea
George Jessup, happy to be finished the first portage and heading out to sea

Ian Vaile tests out his new Greenland T

Garry Thompson - out there

Portage two - Andrew on route from the ferry wharf to Manly Beach

The final leg - out we go again

the downpours were spectacular

Andrew & Cathy having fun

Neil & Cathy coming in through the heads
that rain was so good
It's a great feeling doing a one way trip and landing back at your starting point. Can't wait for the next one!

David Fisher has more pics, trip data and a video of this amazing journey.

Ahhh Shroeds, you're just jealous we didn't have your wheels from the first urban epic.
You could tell the experienced Urban Epiccers, we all double-strapped our kayaks and had no over-turns unlike the poor gumbies on their first epic outing.

So, how much overland schlepping was there?
It appears less than the previous one...
I like the concept of these trips, this one seems a bit more advanced.
If this trend continues somebody will device a skateboard style kayak where one can just scoot along on the pavement sections :-)
