Only 7-8 weeks till kick-off ..... so time to build (or at least TRY to build) a bit of muscle. With that in mind I planned an overnight trip around Lantau - roughly 80kms in 2 days with a side trip over to the Soko Islands.
Dropped in just north of the airport and paddled south past Tung Chung, watching airplanes take off over my right shoulder, and south towards Tai Po. Spent the night camping on the south-east coast of Lantau (Tung Fuk Beach); and then paddled north the next morning through thick fog ... north towards Cheung Chau Island, Mui Wo, Discovery Bay, Disneyland (shame i missed the fireworks), and then swinging around the north end of the island under the Tsing Yi bridge.
Excuse the one-angle photos! Unfortunately there's really only one perspective when you're paddling solo ....
