colambo day launch at orchard beach

cristifero colambo---I do not know why you new worlders have to refer to me as christopher columbus. I have never met this fellow and i seriously doubt i would enjoy the encounter. In any case i will now state the reason for this notice.

I have tasked my good friend and fellow explorer Fernando Dela Vaga with preparing an expedition to the treasure islands.

we will be leaving orchard beach and head out to sea in search of adventure and riches.

    this time of year any lauch can be the last of the year, the weather can go south at any time. if this was the last (and i hope not) it was a great way to go out

    MBW, good luck with your car.
    its not nessasary to call, we are a show and go group, you only need to call if you are going to be late, so we can decide to wait or if its too long----go

    i am now a bit iffy for the trip today. I had to bring my car into the shop early this AM and it's going to take a bit longer than I thought. So I will play it by ear. If I have to cancel I will call you on your cell George. For now I will not change my RSVP but wanted to let you know that if I can't get there I will cancel for the trip today.

    MBW sounds like you are all set. the level 3 refers to the kayakers abilities not the aca or bcu training level. i can always use help making the members in the group trained , practiced and safe.

    I did level one and two instructor course but still need to learn a few skills. Have wet exit down. Would you all be willing for an advanced beginner to join you? Have necky chatham 16, wet suit, spray skirt, bilge pump, paddle float ( and know how to use it.) Let me know I am dying to get out on the water on the 14th...

    A day off! Gotta paddle! Let's hope the weather cooperates. After the paddle, we could have a bite and libations at my place. Let me know how many.
