This is an adult organization (18 years old or older) of paddlers from beginners to advanced. There are a variety of paddles scheduled to accommodate the wide variety of paddlers in this group. Outings may include other activities such as navigation, trekking, biking, camping and the like.
But most important
- Take advantage of local training opportunities and group paddles to improve your skills. Kayak Symposiums and Paddle Fest are an excellent way to improve your skills and socialize with other like minded paddlers.
-Be an active member:
* RSVP for events.
* Participate in the message boards.
*Host Events - If your not an Event Organizer you can Host an Event by using the Suggest Tab on the home page. With two more RSVP's the trip will become active. If it is a short fuse event you can ask an Event Organizer to make it active for you if it passes the common sense test.
- Be safe:
* Always wear a PFD
* Honestly rate you current kayaking level and don't push your self too much over what you feel comfortable doing. Open water paddling can change the environment very quickly with high winds and waves that you have never encountered before so be particularly careful and considerate for others when you RSVP for an Open Water trip.
