Sunset kayak and dinner at Georgetown watefront

  • May 22, 2012 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The weather is getting warm and so is the water, which means it's time to start planning some more sunset kayak trips. The two we did last year were quite successful so hopefully this year will be just as fun.

Come out for a sunset kayak on the Georgetown waterfront followed by some light dinner and conversation.

Jack's boathouse is a nice little facility for renting single or tandem boats or you can bring your own and put in at their dock.  Parking is  limited in their lot to people renting boats but there is street parking nearby.  Lockers and port-a-poddies are available for changing clothes and doing what needs to be done.  They have a grill and pagoda for after paddle eats, or we can wander Georgetown for some chow.

Let's meet at 6:00 pm, with a "drop dead" time of 6:20.  That will allow a little leeway with respect to getting in and paid up for the boat rentals etc and hopefully have us on the water by 6:30.

Rentals have to be returned 30 minutes before closing, which is around 8 (it changes based upon sunset times).

The last couple of times we've done this have been about an hour to an hour and a half on the water.

    The folks I met were very nice and I am sure we would have had a great paddle. Unfortunately, Jack could not rent out boats do to the threat of lightning.

    Hello all. I'm at Jacks boathouse and Jack says he is closed up for the day because the national weather service says so. If anyone wants to come by and chat about kayaking or go to an early dinner, please let me know. I'll hang out for a few minutes longer.

    I plan to go unless it is raining (will check ~5:20pm). I've been there before and am happy to help any newbies :)

    All, I hadn't planned on cancelling due to rain but as it turns out I won't be able to be there after all. Last minute work on top of existing family commitments make it impossible for me to get out to DC in time tonight. For those still planning on going, if you've been there before, please help organize those who haven't. I will be at next month's kayak meetup for certain.
