Friday morning 6th - Get there early because we need to launch at 8 am. We will make the 6 mile paddle over to Vendovi and arrive at around 10 am when the island opens. We can take the tour, hike around, and have a nice lunch there. We will leave there around 2 pm to complete our day with a 4.5 mile paddle over to Pelican Beach on Cypress to camp the CMT site. There is a fairly low tidal exchange that day so the currents should be fairly low.

IMPORTANT - If you have not filled out your profile information in the Sea Kayak Meetup information please do so. We need this to be assured that the group is competent to meet the challenges of this paddle. For safety reasons we will not accept anyone whose profile information does not assure us that they have the necessary skills. Failure to have a completely filled out profile can cause you to be dropped from the paddle.
AND AS USUAL - All my paddles are one strike you're out... I will monitor the site up to 3 hours before we launch for cancellations. (for this paddle the cut off will be Wednesday before the paddle unless an emergency happens) But if we launch and I haven't heard from you that is a no show and you will no longer be welcome on my trips. Please don't sign up unless you really think you can attend. It isn't fair for the other paddlers. As usual, I will manage the trip numbers based on extra organizers and the paddle experience of the people who sign up. So jump on the waiting list because I frequently up the attendees. Thanks.
