Friday Morning Paddle (sorry no rentals)

Let's meet near the Shelter Island boat ramp for an early morning paddle. We'll either go out the the end of Point Loma or depending on the weather paddle to Downtown and see the USS Midway and the Star of India. Then lunch at Mitch's Seafood.

We'll meet to be on the water about 8:00 am, if we head out to the Point it's about eleven miles out and back including Mitch's then a mile back to the start point. If we head Downtown instead it's about 9 miles .

It's good to be a fairly strong paddler and not have a sit on top unless you're really good with it. Wind can be an issue. Bring hats, sun screen, water and snacks. We're just paddlers like you we are not instructors, you are responsible for your self.

    Thanks to everyone who came out. It was a great paddle even though I wimped out and wanted to turn back a little early. I do always say that anyone has the right to ask the group to turn back if they start to feel a little beyond... It's usually me that chickens out first though :)

    I posted my pics they're pretty bad, had crap on the lens.

      P.S. That doesn't apply if you're afraid of signs, that's a majority vote ;)

    Hi, I would like to come but im not very advanced. Can I be with somebody since I dont have a kayak/

    April 4, 2013

    • Hans W.

      Radka- my friend can't make it tomorrow, so I have an extra boat. I have a 16' traditional (can't find the skirt), a 15' Sit on top, and a tandem wide-body

      April 4, 2013

    • Hans W.

      The tandem is a Perception, w/o a rudder. More of a Humphrey's rig. Unless I hear from someone, I'll just bring my traditional kayak for myself. Call anytime after 6:30 OR TEXT ANYTIME @[masked]!

    I just recruited a friend to come along. She regularly paddles and steers with the Kai Elua Outrigger team. Five feet of fury.

    • Greg S.

      Thanks Scott, but the last few times out I seem to be getting slower....must be old age setting in :-) Now Jim with his new faster boat I seem to be trying to catch up all the time, and last weekend when the wind started blowing and we had whitecaps Pat made Jim and I look like we were paddling in mud.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
