Wednesday Night Paddle

RATING - Beginner SK2 (click on link to see rating info), Night Trip, approx 5-8 miles, Medium Speed

This trip tends to have flat water, currents up to about 2MPH under some bridges, and can sometimes have brisk winds, though we usually pick a sheltered route on windy nights.

LOCATION & DESCRIPTION - This trip launches from George English Park (the park at the corner of Sunrise and Bayview Drive, across from the Galleria) and has about a dozen possible routes depending on wind and current. This trip can be as long (or short) as we feel like making it! Snacks/dinner afterwards sometimes, location TBD.

LAUNCHES - There are two launch points in this park, a very nice sand beach right at the corner of Sunrise Blvd and the Middle River (but don't park there), and a flat rocky beach near the Tennis Center toward the north side of the park. Regulars usually launch from the Tennis Center.

KAYAK RENTALS - Kayak rentals are not available for this trip.

PARKING - FREE at the Tennis Center launch - don't park in the metered area, there are occasionally break-ins over there.

GEAR - BASICS plus NIGHT TIME GEAR. Please visit the GEAR page link for specifics!

    I hope next time could be arregements for a kayak rent or someone can share his/hers with me so I can join the activities. I am new on this so I am interested in level K1 or maybe K2 activities only. Thanks in advance and happy Valentine's day to all

      Once a month Kayaking Erica does Wednesday paddle jointly with this group and you can arrange a kayak rental with her.­

    Another great Wednesday evening on the beautiful waters of Fort Lauderdale. Wind died down at sunset and the paddling was smooth, with good company.

    I would like to attend but I have no kayak. Is there a way I can rent a kayak there or share a kayak with someone?

      What kayaking experience do you have, and is there any particular sort of kayak that you know you'd *not* be comfortable in?

      I really have no kayaking experience, I want to learn and practice it. My only sea experience is in snorkeling
