Monday Night Social Paddle

A Social Paddle for Sea Kayakers with California Canoe & Kayak

Where: Oakland Estuary; launch from Jack London Square

When: Selected dates.  Meet at 6:00 pm; on the water at 6:30 sharp!

Who: This is a great trip for "qualified" beginners (i.e. California Canoe & Kayak’s Beginning Sea Kayaking class or equivalent) as well as intermediate and advanced paddlers.  We will launch at 6:30 pm and spend approximately 1 hour, 30 minutes on the water at a relaxed pace.  This is the perfect paddle for those looking to get more time and experience on the water and those looking for a social paddle.

You must have previous sea kayaking experience!  No first timers please, this is not a class.  As a courtesy to Meetup members that have not completed this level of training yet, which includes practice of assisted and self-rescues in sea kayaks, we are offering 10% off our Beginning Sea Kayaking class on the Oakland Estuary.  Sign up online here: http://www.calkayak.com/rsv/dspClndr.cfm?varClassID=177 and enter the following coupon code to receive your discount: CCK-MEETUP-BSK-10%.

Please arrive NO LATER THAN 6:15 PM to sign a waiver and prepare for launch.  Sorry - no late arrivals!

Cost is $20 per person.  This fee includes boat, paddle, PFD, spray skirt, bilge pump and paddlefloat.  Bringing your own boat?  Cost is $10 per person.  Cash, Visa and Mastercard are accepted.

Coast Guard requires that we carry a whistle and a white light.  Please bring your own waterproof headlamp or flashlight, or be ready to purchase one at California Canoe & Kayak.

Street parking is free after 6:00 pm.  Other parking options are available.  Here is a link to parking info: http://www.jacklondonsquare.com/about-us/find-us.

    Hi Monday Night Paddle Participants! The weather for our paddle is predicted to be both rainy and windy. If I decide to cancel the paddle due to inclement weather, I will send out an email and post a comment Monday at 3:00 PM. Please feel free to call California Canoe and Kayak [masked]) if you have any questions.

    This may be a silly question, but can we rent kayaks there?
