Join me for an after work paddle from Azalea Park. We will be paddling UPSTREAM first to get the harder stuff out of the way. YOU WILL NEED A LIGHT SOURCE!!! We will be paddling in fading light so if you're not comfortable with that, please don't sign up.

We did this paddle last week in the pouring rain, but while it was raining 90% of the time it was awesome. We did need our stern lights at the last 2 miles of the be prepared. We also did the harder "up stream" effort first and put the cruise control on for the trip home.

This should be good for anyone that has paddling experience. You will be paddling the entire time, it's still a workout. Show up a little early to unload, do your paddle pre-check, get in the water and we'll do a quick briefing & intros just off the ramp (IN THE WATER) in/on the water at 5:30 p.m. SHARP! Bring a light as daylight begins to deminish day by day.

ANTI-RAIN dance if necessary! Because we paddle in evrything except thunderstorms...bring a spray skirt if you have one :P

Required Items to Bring:

Kayak, SUP or canoe
PFD - at min. it must be on vessel in plain sight
Spray Skirt
deck light? Headlight?
Water - ABFE
