Tuesday July 29 - Kirkland Paddle for those that have their own kayaks

Description: We will paddle in Kirkland on  Lake Washington

It's Summer, the weather is supposed to be nice , it's time for a paddle.

As discussed earlier with the cost of maintaining the gear, I am starting to post events separated into the ones where people borrow gear (I'll charge $10 for those) and ones where people have their own gear (those will remain free).

Lets meet for a  paddle on Lake Washington and the slough. This trip will depend on the weather. We’ll meet at Houghton Beach Park  at 6:30pm for a 60-90 minute evening paddle.

Schedule:

6:15-6:30 find parking

6:30-6:45 carry kayaks to the beach

6:45-8:00 - paddle

8:00-8:15 carry kayaks back to the trailer

8:30 -Dinner at Beach House Grill



This trip is for those that  have your own kayak:



The water is warmer this time of year and it's frequently windy, our launch and route is fairly sheltered but we still need to use our heads and our equipment. . If you are signing up in this meetup, I am assuming that you have your own kayak, if you need to borrow, then sign up in the other event.

[b]Rating:[/b] This trip is rated ‘protected’ or SK1. A wet suit or dry suit is optional.

[b]What to bring:[/b] [*]Kayak, paddle, Paddle Float and Bilge Pump. [*]PFD,

Clothes for paddling, something that will keep you warm if damp, Kayak Shoes, [*]Change of clothes for after, towel. [*]Rain Hat [*]Lights - at least one white light e.g. headlamp (not a strobe or flashing light) to be mounted on the kayak on worn on the person. Cyalume lights work great because they still work when wet. Fasten them to your kayak with duct tape. [*]Perhaps a power bar or dried figs to munch on. [*]Sense of Humor and fun.

      I will see what I can fit on my roof, no good trailer parking or unload in that part of Kirkland, so everything has to fit on the roof rack.

    Hi Saul, I asked last week if it was ok for me to use the $10 I paid for this weeks outing. Is that still ok? And if so could you bring a kayak for me tomorrow? Thanks, Lauren
