THIS TRIP IS CANCELED
Let's all meet at the pine island marina around 8:30a
will launch by 9am, catch the tide on the way out.
Then catch the 2pm tide coming in. The tide will be in our favor that day.
We head west towards the boat channel. Many of us have been there already So many of us know the way. This trip is not for beginners. This trip is for Advance paddlers, or those that feel they have the abilities to make this trip.
You and you along know what your abilities are.
Besides the outings planned by our organizers, We do not screen these persons nor have we checked out their kayaking abilities. Regardless of who organizes and posts an event, when you take part in kayaking or paddling, you alone are responsible for your safety. Kayaking can be dangerous. You paddle at your own risk. Safety is your responsibility. Become aware of the dangers of wind, waves, currents, and wakes from big boats, sun and heat. Make sure you have a personal flotation device with you. It's mandatory you have a personal flotation device with you and a whistle when kayaking. Wear you PFD, Take plenty of water and sun block. Be ready to turn back if you no longer feel comfortable in a situation. No other person knows better what your limitations are than you. Realize that risk cannot be eliminated totally. Storms with strong winds, big waves and driving rain can develop quickly. Pay attention to changes in the weather and head for shore where you can wait safely until it has passed. Being out a long way from shore is risky because kayaks cannot travel quick enough to get to shore when a storm develops. For that reason it is always safest to paddle fairly close to shore so that it can be reached in just a couple minutes if necessary. This trip maybe canceled due to bad weather conditions.
