Alpacka Yukon Packraft in High Wind

alpacka yukon packraft with drybag

My second test of Alpacka Yukon packraft took place still on lakes (April 9, 2011), but with high winds and some chop.

I used a heavier load on a bow of my pacraft – a drybag containing my photo geart inlcuding Canon DSLR camera, a tripod and flash. The packraft was tracking much better. And, it seems to be not a big problem to paddle against 20 mph wind with some stronger gusts (30mph?).

I explored 3 of 3 7 lakes within Fort Collins’ Riverbend Ponds Natural Area covering about 3 miles. Because of wind I didn’t unpack my big camera. The above snapshot was made with Pentax Optio W30, a waterproof camera on duty in all my paddling.
