Announcing a new Meetup for Seattle Area Sea Kayaking Meetup
What: Skills Development & paddle on Lake Union
July 7,[masked]:30 PM
Where: Click the link below to find
Meetup Description: Since I'm in Seattle on business today, I
thought I should post a paddle.
Are you new to paddling or been paddling
a while but rusty on some of your skills or maybe you're polished and want to
help out (please email me if that's the case so we can divy up the work). Safe
trips start with developing our own skills, so come join us for 1.5 hours of fun
on the lake.
Here's what we'll go over after we do a short paddle to warm
o Forward stokes - how to use your paddle to go someplace ;-)
Steering/Control Strokes - how to actually go where you want
Stability/Bracing Strokes - how to keep the open side up ;-)
o Self Rescue -
how to successfully get your butt back into a boat (and hopefully other parts
o Rescue Assistance - how to help someone get back into their own boat
or carry them to shore
o General Water safety and resources - a basic
overview of the rules of the water/road, what the required equipment is; little
things like currents and wind, selecting your route, tide charts, current
charts, navigation charts etc?
What to bring:
o Prepare to get wet!
You might want to bring a towel and change of clothes.
o Moisture wicking
clothes (lycra or polypropylene rather than cotton) or a wet/drysuit.
Water bottle. There's water and restrooms at the park.
o Gloves to protect
o Footware you can get wet, preferably without laces,
buckles, etc that could snag something and prevent you from exiting the boat in
an emergency or that could damage the boat.
o Your sense of
adventure and fun
o Camera with waterproof container
Refreshments and snacks for afterwards
It's best if you bring your own
boat but I can bring extra boats if you need to borrow one. I have 8 single
boats and 4 tandems available for this paddle. If you want to share a boat with
someone, please specify with whom you are partnering or that you're looking for
a partner or needing to borrow a boat in the RSVP comment. Remember if you're
borrowing one of my boats, you need to call or email me at least an hour before
the event if you aren't going to make it. This saves your friends from waiting
while I take an empty boat back home before we launch.
