First Coast Outfitters will be leading the paddle flotilla that will be accompanying Jim Alabiso of JumpingFish and a group of world class swimmers for the Up The River Downtown 10K swim!!! This is a great event put on by a great organization! Plus it benefits the Special Olympics!! Please take a moment and check these guys out, and if you can come out to Riverside Arts Market on Saturday, the swimmers and flotilla should be arriving at noon! www.jumpingfish.net
We will be meeting at the Arlington City Boat Ramp at 9:00am, and anticipate launching between 9:30 and 10:00am. The timing will all be dependent on the swimmers. Our flotilla crew will have a meeting prior to launch to go over specifics as far as how we will be positioned. The Flotilla will be paddling all the way to the Riverside Arts Market, where we will get out and join the celebration.
People will have the option of paddling back to Arlington around 2 or 3pm, or if we can work it out, we can make a shuttle run, and leave the kayaks at RAM and pick up our cars if rides are available.
