Skerries sea kayaking trip.

About the Trip:



Every week I'm organizing sea kayaking meetups in different places. This time we will head to Skerries ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skerries,_Dublin ) which I really like. Skerries has five islands in total off its coast. These are Shenick Island, St Patrick's, Colt Island, Rockabill and Lambay Island and all of them have their own history. I love kayaking and being on the water, doing exercises, breathing fresh air and meeting new and interesting people. This kayaking session is suitable for the beginners but all of you have to be 18 years of age and over and must know how to swim.

 

Little bit of Skerries Islands History:



Early writers tell how an island off Skerries was used as a landing place for an invasion, which happened in the second century. This island was either Shenick or Red Island, which would have been a tidal island at the time. When the invaders landed, they formed ranks and at low tide marched to the mainland, where they were promptly defeated at the ancient settlement of Knocknagin, north of Ballbriggan.

What will we do on a trip in Skerries :



We will start our kayaking session from the Beach near the Martello Tower. Before we go on the water we will get all safety instruction. We will paddle to the Shenick's Island first, it's should take us 20 minutes. Then we will land there and will take some pictures. Then we will paddle to the Colt Island for another about 20 minutes and we will take our deserved brake there. If the weather will be nice we can go for a swim. When we will be ready we will head towards St Patrick's Island, we land there and will go around and will head back to the coast line from where we started.
