Upcoming events (5)
In the relative cooler temperatures we will launch at 9AM and do a 5 to 6 mile warm up paddle at a 3 to 3.4 mph pace. It will be a time to stretch, converse, and play before class with Don at 12:00. Bring a lunch or a snack and we will be able to dine either at the Goodland Bridge or at the Goodland Marina Boat Park. AND THEN MEET AT THE BRIDGE, IN OUR BOATS, AT 12 NOON FOR THE “Learn to use your VHF” Pre-class, class.
We will meet at the Goodland bridge and paddle into the ebbing current of Marco River. We will start by crossing an opposing body of water by estimating and executing a ferry angle to end up at a desired location on the opposite side of the river. There will also be an opportunity to safely practice rescues in moving water. This event is for experienced paddlers who want to challenge and strengthen their boat handling and rescue skills in moving water. Plan to get wet. Tow belts and a short tow are recommended. Spray skirts, paddle floats and bilge pumps are required.
I’m gambling that we won’t have any thunderstorm activity, but if it is predicted, this event will be cancelled.
This event is put on by PCPC, Paradise Coast Paddler’s Club and we are excited to have y’all at SFK join us!!! 😄 If you are a member of PCPC please sign up only on one Meetup page, please and thank you.
Bring a chair, snack and drink if you wish. Might want to bring bug spray too. Occasionally the bugs like to taste people. 😉 Enjoy good conversations and watch the sunset. If it rains we’ll announce here that it is cancelled but a little rain won’t hurt us. A great chance to meet people if it's your first time!
Please bring a kayak and paddle off this beach if you’d like. This is not a scheduled paddle so there may or may not be others paddling. If someone is interested in leading a paddle on a Beach Bash please do!!
RE: Covid - great place to congregate as we are outside and bring our own chairs. Please be respectful of people’s space. Everyone has their own needs and comfort levels.
