PHOTO: Caught out in big seas

Here's a photo that Andrew McAuley took just after we had paddled the 20 odd Kilometers from the southern extremities of Tasmania to Maatsuyker Island,half way around on our West Coast of Tasmania,Strahan to Hobart Trip.

We were paddling in huge swells and as we closed in on Maatsuyker the seas and currents made the ocean pretty messy. We ended up having to make some quick decisions and Paul Loker (in photo) noticed a gap through some off shore biggish rocks . I ended up having to do some huge high bracing as waves sent me through the gap.
We were hollering so much after getting through,the adrenalin was fair pumping.

And this was the sheltered side of the Island !!
