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.

You've heard it everywhere these days
COVID-19
And it affects us in that there will be no club meeting or pool sessions,
and no side trips out of the province or involving parks.
Maximum group-size as of June 5 is now 50.

OK, I'm going to schedule some paddles
ALTERNATIVELY
The following link to Google Maps has a bunch of paddle starting points.

Launch Points

Using them, the weather and tides you can have a paddle.
The weather has been pretty bad so far this year, so keep that foremost in mind.

While not all of us are retired, many are so I may schedule mid-week as well.
Due to the unpredictable delays at the border crossing, I'm skipping NS for now.
