If you don't know where it is use this link on Google Maps. Also Waze works.

Please join us for a Rescue and Skills Practice at Columbia Island. We'll head whichever direction makes the most sense given the wind and tide at the time of launch. This event focuses on skills practice. This is NOT a tour or distance paddle.

Gather on grass next to ramp. Please be respectful, it's a busy ramp with lots of big boats. We'll squeeze down the sides to launch by helping each other.

Currently we are practicing a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy with the boat ramp "fee". DO NOT STAGE ON THE RAMP! Placing your boat on the ramp is a definite no-no.

Meet at 400, Launch at 430. Return to launch by 630.

Bathrooms across parking lot.

Dinner somewhere close by.

You must WEAR a PFD, not just carry it.

Kayaking is an activity with "assumed risk." Each paddler is responsible for their own safety. We assume no liability, and are not present to guarantee safety.
