The weekend is coming, the weather is supposed to be doing something , it's time for a paddle.
Lets meet for a paddle. This trip will depend on the weather. We’ll meet at Montlake Rec Center at 2pm for a 60-90 minute afternoon paddle.
The water is colder this time of year and it's frequently windy, our launch is sheltered and route is fairly sheltered but we still need to use our heads and our equipment. In addition to kayaks, I have 4 loaner wetsuits that fit people in the[masked] lb range and two drysuits for people in the less than 150 lbs range. If you need to borrow a wetsuit or drysuit mention that in your RSVP. If you are signing up in this meetup, I am assuming that you need to borrow a kayak, if you have your own, then sign up in the other event.
