Announcing a new Meetup for Seattle Area Sea Kayaking Meetup Group!

What: Aug 2 - Time to cool down - Afternoon paddle in Kenmore & self rescue practice

When: August 13,[masked]:30 PM

Where:
Logboom Park in Kenmore
6100 NE 175th St
Kenmore, WA 98028
[masked]

The 6:30 paddle has such a huge waiting list, I thought I should add another paddle. The weather is awesome and summer is in the air, so let's meet for a paddle on Lake Washington. We?ll meet at Logboom Park at 3:30 pm for a 1 to 2 hour paddle, prior to my evening paddle, you're welcome to join us for the BBQ that willbe at my house after the 6:30pm p[addle - the BBQ will be around 8:30pm. With the water starting to warm up, we will also demonstrate self rescues for those of you wanting to do one of the upcoming San Juans trips.

We'll have loaner kayaks replete with life jackets and paddles for about 16 people. I will bump up the RSVP count to allow anyone who is bringing their own kayak to join us. I am cross posting this to three other groups as well. Seattle Outdoor Adventures, Seattle Get Up and Get Out, Human Powered Touring, so if it's full and you want a spot, you can RSVP on one of those.



So far I am bringing kayaks for the following people - if you need to borrow and don't see your name on the list - add "need to borrow" to your RSVP and make sure your RSVP is a "Yes". Here are the boat assignments so far. I did not assign any kayaks to Maybe's. I still have 3 kayaks left, so if you're a maybe and you need to borrow then you need to change your RSVP ASAP. You also need to show up otherwise you can't borrow a boat from me in the future.

Rating: This trip is rated ?protected? or SK1.


What to bring:
What to bring:
o Prepare to get wet, You might want to bring a towel and change of clothes.
o Water bottle. There's water and restrooms at the park.
o Refreshments and snacks for afterwards
o Your sense of adventure and fun
  • 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.


    If you decide not to show up, please email me, or change your RSVP or even phone me at least 3 hours before the launch. No shows for borrowed boats are a headache since that means we delay launch while someone drives the empty boat(s) back to my house - can't leave them on the trailer or they may find a new home while we're out paddling, and towing empty boats while we paddle isn't that much fun.

    I'm sure all of you will have a fun paddle.

    -Saul
