Major 2020 Sea Kayak Trips – So far, we’ve laid out dates for our extended trips to allow people to plan their vacations. The following 4 to 7 days camping trips are planned for this year:
April 19-25, Beaufort, North Carolina – Dave led us to Beaufort, NC in 2014. This is a great area to paddle. In 2014, we paddled around an island with wild horses, paddled out through a salt marsh to open water near Bear Island, and explored the shorelines in the area. We will get details out on this trip within the next month.
June 7-14 – Chesapeake Bay Robert will lead us back to the Chesapeake Bay area. He published details for this trip to the December Newsletter (p.4) and I have copied it to the club calendar.
1st or 2nd Weed in October - Land between the Lakes. Last fall, we took our first club trip down to Land between the Lakes in southern Kentucky. This will be 4-5 day trip but we will be base camping and day paddling so that people drop infor part of the event if they can't attend the entire event.
September 12-19 – Apostle Islands Going to the Apostles after Labor Day is interesting. I’ve done this once before. It was wonderful because we almost had the entire place to ourselves. We were the only campers in the 19 campsites at Presque Ile Bay on Stockton Island and we only saw two other kayakers the entire trip PLUS, there were no bugs! We will probably structure this trip like our 2017 trip and I will e-mail out details by May.
If there is interest, some people may extend this trip with a visit to Voyagers National Park.
We will fill in weekend/day paddles as well as training events at the January 4 event and the January 25 trip planning meeting. This will include such favorites as South Manitou Island, Lake Monroe, Geist, Cataract Falls, the East shore of Lake Michigan, and possibly Grayson Lake. In addition, some people may “scout” out Door County, Wisconsin in preparation for a club trip there in 2021.
This post above was editted to reflect changes from the 1/4/2020 Trip Planning Meeting. The Full schedule should be posted in the next week.
The full schedule is now posted to the Sea Kayak Schedule.
