A lot of paddles are duplicated on the schedule for two reasons.
Some are fantastic paddles, alternately we may get blown out of the water if the winds are too high to be considered safe.
Paddles may be cancelled on relatively short notice - check here before heading out.

Tides dictate where and when we can paddle, and weather dictates if we can paddle.
Wednesday and Saturday paddles may change to Thursday and Sunday paddles as the weather dictates.
Other events may be added as the season progresses.
All current members will be advised by group email of upcoming trips and events as they draw near.
