Paddle Annapolis With Lunch at Davis Pub
RSVP's for this event open tonight at 9:15 PM
The actual attendance limit for this paddle is 30 paddlers. 6 spots have been set aside for people who will be renting kayaks. If you are a renter on the waiting list I will move you to the attending list. Those spots not filled by renters 24 hours before the paddle will be filled with members on the waiting list who have paid the voluntary dues. Everyone has the same chance to sign up for the first 24 slots.
Sunday July 28, 2013 will find us on the water at 10:00 AM from the Truxton Park boat ramp on Spa Creek in Annapolis. Plan to arrive with plenty of time to get your boat and gear ready to launch promptly at 10:30 AM.
This paddle MAY involve a fair amount of time in rather choppy water as we travel around Eastport. If you are not comfortable in chop this is NOT the paddle for you.
The put in is a nice little sandy beach immediately to the left of the boat ramp. Pull up, drop your boat and gear off and then move your car to the parking area a few hundred yards back up the road. There is no ramp fee for vehicles parked in the boat ramp parking area that do not have a trailer attached.
We'll paddle around the harbor in Annapolis and strut our stuff along side million dollar yachts through "Ego Alley" before heading out around the point of Eastport and in to Back Creek with a stop for lunch at Davis Pub in Eastport. If the water is too rough around the point we'll drive over to David Pub after the paddle. We should be back to the take out at Truxton Park sometime around 3:00 PM.
If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to send me a note. See you on the water!
Kayaking involves known and unanticipated risks including physical injury and death that cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential quality of the sport. Group organizers and leaders and other members cannot pay continuous attention to all participants. Participants must be responsible for their own safety. Don’t overestimate your skills and abilities. Take instructional courses to learn about paddling technique, safety, self rescue and hypothermia. Be aware of the tides, currents and weather conditions that will affect your safety on the days you paddle. Cooperate with group organizers, leaders and other members to insure your own safety as well as the safety of others and make it the fun, enjoyable day on the water it should be.
