+17 Km Paddle: Scarborough Bluffs to Ashridge's Bay Park

  • No location was chosen

  • A light workout from the bluffs to a little ways past Woodbine Beach, very doable in about 5-6 hours if conditions are ideal. Was considering going down to one of the points on the Leslie Spit but that's another 4 Km and there might not be enough daylight left to attempt it this time of year with a late start...we'll see. If you can't make it out for the 17 Km, come out and paddle around the marina.

    Water temperature is starting to dip this time of year, please have proper gear, a suitable boat, and skills for reentry. Safety is everyone's own responsibility. Event is a go even if it rains.

    Approx. Route: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6094340

    Parking: At the Green P. I think parking might even be free this time of year.

    You should also have with you:

    - Water & food
    - Flashlight
    - $2 (or send online payment to Dale)

    Please update your RSVP if you're not attending and make a donation to help Dale keep this group going -- looks we're still a little short for next spring's installment. Thanks.

    Note:
    -Sunset is at 6:51 PM on Oct. 5th
    -Nearest rental is in the downtown core

    Doesn't look like this event will go ahead with the thundershowers this Saturday--and Sunday isn't looking any better. Hopefully the weather stays nice and there'll be other opportunities on another weekend.

      OK, I'm going up to Parry Sound for Greenland rolling with James Manke at the OSKC instead.

    If anyone has or knows someone who has a kayak for sale at a discounted rate, I am looking for one. I have one now but it is a fishing kayak. A little harder to paddle for longer treks. I would like a regular single kayak that I could use for this kind of adventure. Thanks.

    I am also a "maybe". Is this a one way or return trip:)?

      It's return trip. But if you can get another car up to Woodbine beach you could easily make it 8.5 Km.

    @Ok Fernanda, I'm was trying to have my boat in the water by 9 so I could finish with plenty of time to attend a concert in the evening--but this rain might wreck things if it all comes down in a short period. I shouldn't have tempted fate by asking for it.

    @Henry - I am maybe. As per your email if you need to change time please go ahead with what works for you.

    Does anyone have the link for the PayPal? I would like to make a donation but can't find.

      Jason, I don't think it's listed. Looks like you have to send an email to Dale to get that info.

    I need to find a regular kayak that I can do these types of paddles with. Sounds like a great day.
