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.

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.
