Sandbar F&W Access

Week night paddle protocol Launch time 6:00pm

The CKC sponsors weekly informal paddles open to all members or future members regardless of skill level. We request that all paddlers arrive on time, dressed appropriately for water temperature and with all required gear, ready to launch at 6:00 pm. There are no formal trip leaders but we do recommend that the group discuss the trip expectations prior to launch to ensure that everyone is on board with a trip plan. Please give yourself 20-30 minutes to get ready to go.

Required equipment: Pfd's, kayak, paddle, head lamp, kayak flotation (bulk heads or floats), spray skirts (conditions may change, questions please ask)
Recommended equipment: pump, drinking water, snacks, sun screen, hat, and extra clothing

Please post to the forum that you are coming. Some people do not drive up for the paddle if no one posts that they are going paddling.PLEASE LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT YOU ARE PADDLING.

It would be great if someone would post after the paddle on how many people made it to paddle that night.

You can locate launch locations by going to our Goggle map the link is located on the left-hand side of the Meet-Up page. Look for the Google Icon.

    Great night to be on the water. We did a little over 7 nautical miles.

    Showed up late and didn't see anyone so I paddled around the WRA. Not bad for my first outing of the season. Would be a good site to practice self rescue.

      David - Sorry we missed you. We took off at 6:05, my watch. Good that you had a nice paddle.

    Very calm and warm night with great sunsets. A mother falcon kept close tabs on us off Clay Point.
    8 of us paddled

    Weather seems ok, but I don't like the forecast for the waves.
    So I'm backing out.

    Weather is looking good for later. Winds should die down, but if they don't, it's the sandbar, always a calm side. I might come out around 5:30 and paddle for a short bit, but Bruins game is at 8:15, so I'll leave early to get home for that.
