Crystal Cove Paddle (the Cottages area) plus Rolling Practice

We will meet at at the Coast Guard Beach in Newport Harbor between 7:00 and 7:30 (depending on how fast you get ready) for a launch at 8:00 for a paddle to Crystal Cove (the Cottages area) and back. Please make sure to get there early enough to be on the water at 8:00. This is a 5 to 6 mile round trip ocean paddle. When we arrive back in the Harbor we will stop at China Cove and spend an hour or so practicing rolling skills and what ever comes to mind. We try to start our return to the Coast Guard Beach by 11:00 so that the group can be at "Fireside" (the Bluff's Shopping Center) for lunch by 12:00 to discuss the days events. There are no kayak rentals and you must have a kayak that will keep up with a moderately paced paddle (normally 12 feet plus in length). We help each other during the paddle and practice session but none of us are there in the role of instructor or guide and all who attend are all responsible for their own safety.

    Who knew you didn't need a boat to paddle?. Didn't believe it till Lenora started doing laps around China Cove with just a paddle. All that money wasted on a boat....

    I was little cold today. The sun did not come out to warm us up. The shore line was a lot of fun. It was great paddling with every one.
