It's Sushi Time! Let's eat some delicious food at Mitsuwa Market Place.
This trip is not a technically difficult one – as we head north, there is less commercial traffic and challenging water than on a southbound trip. However, endurance is essential. You must be able to paddle steadily for 1.5 to 2.5 hours at a time, then do the same on the return trip.
The landing is tricky because there are pilings and mud. Sturdy water shoes are required.
PREREQUISITES TO RSVP:
1) volunteered in 2021
2) completed at least one 5+ mile trip in 2020/21
3) attended 2 trainings in 2021 including a "wet exit"
