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.

OK, I'm going to schedule some paddles
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.
I've scheduled mainly rivers so the wind should have less impact.

Paddles are scheduled for Saturday but due to weather may take place on Sunday.

While not all of us are retired, many are so I may schedule mid-week as well.

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.
