Already in October I thought that the water will get up in the spring. She was just cold. But I found it very quickly that you just need to wear it appropriately. I added 3 mm neoprene to the winter cell. Not only is it very warm, but in the event of falling into the icy waters it can be swim without the risk of early underage. One has enough time to rescue. Even temperatures deep below freezing are not a big deal. However, when a strong wind was added to frost, and the snowfall I put in the neoprenic shoes and gloves chemical heat.

The strong winds in the open spaces like the Danube trough can be really annoying. Without protecting the face the painful shield.

The motor boats were the only vessels that I met during the winter.

The entrance to the Danube in the Karlovean shipyard was frozen so I moved to the little Danube. The winter looks completely different. Ideal place to train and relax.

Only exceptionally here at this time of year you meet someone.  I usually attach me and wonder if I’m not cold. “No, and you?:)”

First, the tributaries of the small Danube and its smaller shoulders were stuck. Later, they also primed the shores. Below the stream it was frozen across its breadth.

Thinner ice is not a problem. The weight of the boat is easy to crack and the plastic paddle can be cut and move forward.

Thicker ice, however, poses a certain risk. The bandwagon took me a couple of times managed to run out on ice and get stuck on it. Just very hard I got back on the water. In the event of a kayaking, I could easily find myself under ice.

The ice was not just on the water.

During the summer, I rested the tree a few times, but my nest I noticed through the winter. The leaves and vegetation conceal many secrets.

Over the winter I learned to “steal” the Cormoron fish. The nailed Cormoran can not fly. Before the kayak it escapes underwater. When it already has full teeth the fish will return and fly.

About half of the winter was added to the training and the steamer Martin. As you can see also he’s gonna try everything. 🙂

Getting it on the water was not easy at all. However, he found that just good clothes.

He once caught us a snowstorm. We sat on the water in sunny weather.  During the hour, however, the sky overshaded the black clouds. Soon he started such a with world with snow that was seen so after the tip of the boat. While we returned to cars, everything was under snow. Clothing did not disappoint.

Later I took the ice and snow got used to. It belongs to the winter. Some animals are easier to spot in winter due to greater contrast with snow.

Nutrie I discovered thanks to the snow. I was returning to different families over and over again during every workout.

The heavy frost immediately freezes all water, which deflates from the paddles. Quickly on the paddle, kayaking and clothing creates a thick layer of ice.

At sea it can be even dangerous. The wind blows up the waves and the water freezes on one side of the kayaking, which becomes unstable, due to the disproportion of the weight.

In addition to the frozen water on clothing I also frozen a smile when I found out that I had a frozen rudder. In addition to the Vlń, it blew even a strong impact wind and was very difficult to maintain direction.

The snowdrops announce the arrival of spring and so I quit the winter season. Kayak I already moved to the Danube. The winter padging took care, among other things, that I am not starting the training completely from scratch. I hope I manage my limits to move again a bit further.
