Kayaking Jamaica Bay - September 22
The Miramar J-Bay Jam, Explore Jamaica Bay by Kayak on September 22nd. Wake up and smell the salt air. See New York from a new perspective and feel far away from the city. While waterfront views are stunning from the shoreline, kayakers around Jamaica Bay know that the sights are even more beautiful out on the water. The Bay is a large expanse, an 18,000 acre wetland estuary consisting of numerous islands, salt marshes, a labyrinth of waterways, meadowlands and freshwater ponds. The Miramar J-Bay Jam is a medium length (8-10 miles round trip), intermediate paddle that will explore some of the marshes and islands of Jamaica Bay. No beginners please. (Trip Leader will tailor trip to abilities of group.) Kayaks, paddles, life vests, etc. will be provided by Sebago Canoe Club. Assemble at Sebago’s club house (directions below) at 8:30am for a 9:30am launch. Bring a picnic lunch, hat and sunscreen. Estimate finish: 3:00pm Space is limited. Please register with leader at least two weeks in advance. Rain date: September 23rd Cost: $10 donation to Sebago Canoe Club. Please bring exact change $10 bill.

What we're about

The Meetup's 500+ members represent a wide range of ages and skiing/snowboarding abilities. Both singles and couples are welcome. We have both events and trips - the perfect opportunity to meet new friends!

The club is based in New York City, with members from Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Long Island, New Jersey, and many other places all around the NY Metropolitan area.

I also use this group to let you know about events run by the Miramar Ski Club, which I am a member of. Joining this group and joining that club are not the same thing. It is a non-profit club, and I don't make any money off of your trips. I do, however, get the opportunity to share my love of skiing (and I am accepting of snowboarders!) with others who share this interest.

You can learn more about the Miramar Ski Club at http://www.miramar.org/ .

RSVP'ing here is just a way of telling other meetup group members that you plan to attend an event, but in the case of trips, you must contact the Event Leader to formally register.

Hope to meet you at an event soon!
