Point Lookout Paddle

  • Jul 12, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

RSVPs will be open on June 12th at 9:15 PM.  A few people snuck in early!!!  I hit the wrong button, sorry!  RSVPs will not be re-opened until June 12th.  The lucky 2 who snuck in lucked out!

 

Point Lookout Paddle

 

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.  Chuck will actually be heading up to Solomon's Island to provide rentals for Jake's Tiki Bar Paddle. But Kimmie will have boats available to rent.  Sign up quickly, because Chuck will have rentals at both sites and they will go fast!!!!

 

We're at that time of year where weather changes rapidly anywhere near the Chesapeake Bay.  We will do our best to plan paddle options that take everyone's skill level into account but depending on the weather you probably should be willing to deal with a little chop.

We will meet at Point Lookout State Park boat launch for a 10:30 AM on the water time, or you can stop by our camp sites at Greens Point Loop sites 94-97.  Yes, we are camping.  If interested, please let Kimmie know so she can make sure she gets enough sites.  We are camping and paddling Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

The boat launch is past the causeway on the right hand side. It is a double concrete launch site. There are bathroom facilities available and a small park store on site.

We will explore Canoy Lake and then into Hall Pond. There is a small bridge to go under and then on to a nice beach area take a break. We will then return towards the boat launch. If the weather and winds are favorable we will then paddle out the lake into the Potomac River and along the beach to the Point Lookout Lighthouse.

We should be on the water at least 3-4 hours, but we will make final plans on that day based on weather and activities.

Again, if you are interested in camping, let Kimmie know!

    I echo the thanks to Kimmie for great leadership! This was a fun paddle with a lot of wild life - in and out of the boats:)

    Thank you Kimmie and Chuck for arranging yet another outstanding paddle. The St. Mary's River paddle and concert were not to be missed, the camp sites were perfect, and today's paddle with multiple swimming stops was a blast. Can't say how much I appreciate how much work you both for all of us!

    • Laurie C.

      Thanks - I was looking at one of your older emails where you didn't have me listed and I started to worry. Looking forward to it. Stay dry Thursday night.

    July 9, 2014

    • Kimmie

      The CKA sites are all full. I thought he meant you got your own site.

      Sherry, I may want to take you up on the hotel. I'm in a crunch at work, and it may be difficult for me to find time to pull my camping stuff out. Kimmie, If I don't stay in the camp ground, I'll still pay since I asked you to reserve Friday night for me.

    07/08/14: Just confirming that I will have a kayak for Kurt but other than that my boats are totally booked for Jake's SHR Tiki Bar paddle in Solomons the same day as this one.

    Terri L would like to come but doesn't have a boat. Any chance any of you could bring an extra boat for her for the day. Whether you loan it to her for free or ask her to pay some amount is fine by me.

    July 8, 2014

    • Laurie C.

      I would be happy to bring my extra kayak but I am only there on Friday night and Saturday. I leave Saturday after the day's paddle so this isn't a good solution if Terri need a kayak for Sunday. Just let me know and I can bring my other boat for Saturday.

      July 8, 2014

    • Terri L.

      Thanks so much, Laurie!! That would be perfect. I'm driving down Sat morning and going back after the paddle. Good reason for me to buy a paddle (like yours, maybe)! And thanks to you too, Chuck! Terri

    I would love to do this paddle, but haven't figured out how to clone myself yet. This is a KIP paddle day. Next time.
