Description: This will be a practice day to provide on-water help with self and assisted kayak rescues.

Location: Ft DeSoto, Arrowhead Picnic Area

Schedule: Saturday, June 9th. Meet at 9:00 and launch by 9:30, returning to the launch site around 2:30. We’ll eat lunch on the beach.

Additional information: Participants must be prepared to spend considerable time in the water. We will review and practice both self rescues and assisted rescues, with the intent of making you more comfortable with offshore paddling in the Gulf. There is a $5 Parking Fee if you don’t have a Pinellas Parks Annual Pass. Bring lunch/snack, lots of drink, and sunscreen.

Difficulty: This paddle is open to all levels although you must be able to swim and perform a wet-exit.

Required: Sea kayak at least 12' with water-tight bulkheads, decklines, and spray deck; no inflatable PFDs. No sit-on-tops please. Bring lots of water/sports drink, lunch, sunscreen. Must register on the web site or RSVP to the trip leader to allow notification of any changes.
