Whiskey Island Wednesdays

Come out to Wendy Park at Whiskey Island to paddle and be with paddlers. Let's see if we can build a regular outing where paddlers can be with other paddlers for safety, learning and good water outings. Destinations will vary depending on paddlers ability. Learners can stay near-shore within the breakwall. Experienced sea kayakers can do longer distance and on the Lake. There are a number of people who are members who do not own a kakak or gear. If anyone has a spare kayak and is willing to share it please let me know an I will make the connection. Looking into Kayak liveries as well. Stand-Up Paddleboarders welcome! Safety is in numbers and experience.

    The beach at Wendy Park looks great. Not sure who removed all the logs and combed the sand, but thanks to whoever did it. May have been the Whiskey Island Marina or a scout project...

    This paddle was an example of why Whiskey Island and the Lakefront is one of the best places to kayak. We continue to gain sea kayaking experience venturing out above the breakwall. Thanks again to Amanda for posting the map. Having the breakwall to our side gives a landing place (and portage to calmer water if needed) in ocean water. Great paddle....

    Clean beach and new sand were great! Some big swells beyond the break wall made for good learning experience! All went well!

    Sorry everyone, I inadvertently changed the site. It's still at Wendy Park, same as before. I will put it back quickly.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
