Kayak group on beach south of Brantwood
With numerous campsites, easy road access and shallow shelving beaches, Coniston Water can be a great place for beginning kayakers in the summer. The water is deep in the middle, and southwesterly winds can whip up quite a swell (as we found the day after this shot was taken), so good supervision is essential. Even without the wind, the weather can be miserable at almost any time of year, as with the persistent drizzle seen here, so it was good that this mixed group were all well dressed for the conditions and had brought plenty to eat and drink as we paused on this beach. The mix of boats gave everyone the opportunity to swap about and try both sea kayaks and plastic whitewater boats.
