Hey Gang,

Your captain here. Hope you don't mind being called gang. Just a note about our meetup last night for the Mini Intro to Sea Kayaking Class. It almost didn't happen as the storm and rain lasted to about 6:45 pm and we were all waiting around wondering when the lightning would cease. All of a sudden about 7:30 pm it did and a beautiful rainbow appeared. Immediately all seven of us put-in and paddled out to a gorgeous sunset. The group performed great in the class and we were able to get some very nice pictures of the kayaks and the rainbow. Check out the photos album.

To clear up a few things about our first meetup, this meetup last night was to get those interested in the Wednesday meetups up to speed on paddling technique and gain some confidence on the water. It did just that for those whose attended.

If some of the group are interested in these mini classes during the week to help brush up on your skills, please let us know as we will be happy to put together more to suite the group. The class consisted of the forward paddling stroke, sweep stroke, reverse sweep stroke, draw stoke and low brace. The cost was $35 (included kayak rental and all gear)

Keep in mind there is a 50% chance of rain on Wednesday, but as Tampa Bay weather goes the clouds come from the West and dump rain on the bay area and then quickly move to the East. So if it's raining in Tampa if may have stopped in Safety Harbor by 6:00 pm or so. These weather patterns more times then not, leave us with clear skies and a spectacular sunset.

Thanks very much for those who could attend and we'll see you on Wednesday, July 18 th tomorrow.

Call Mike at[masked] or Mj at[masked] to check out if we are paddling or concerns about the weather.
