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!

    Only three people counting myself showed up but the three of us had a good time. We did 5.5 miles in very cool weather.

    Is ANYONE coming? I would hat to get there and no one is there, because I can just paddle here in Boca tonight. We paddled Monday night and the wind is out of the NW and really not much of a problem in the canals. Anyway I will be there and ready to go at 7pm, hope someone shows up....

    Hey y'all, looking forward to a pre-Thanksgiving paddle tonight, don't worry about the wind, it's out of the NNW, we can stay in areas where it won't be bad.

      It's a North West Wind. We can stay in the canals and it won't be bad at all. I know I will be there and hope everyone who RSVP's will come too. We can choose a route sheltered from the wind.

    I need to rent or borrow a kayak to paddle. Anything out there? I'm from Ohio here working & had to fly down so couldn't bring mine.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
