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!

    It was a GREAT little (8-1/2 mile) trip! Terri & Christy suggested that we take a little detour and go into Mayan Lake to check out the roosting pelicans, which were there in number; we also saw raccoons, herons, and plenty of mullet. Wonderful change to the routine, and a great group to enjoy a beautiful night with. The rains even held off 'til after we got off the water!
