  • 9:30 AM
  • Gandy Bridge to Weedon Island
  • 1


  • Paddle about 3 hours at a leisurely pace

Trip has been cancelled.

Meet Al Tillson to launch from the Pinellas side of Gandy Bridge near Urban Kai at 9:30 a.m.  to launch at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday November 11 for a paddle south toward Weedon Island and into some of the mangrove area.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we will practice social distancing on and off the water and prioritize towing in the event of a capsize.  To facilitate this, we will spend a few minutes before launch learning and practicing a method of getting into our boats that makes it possible to handle slightly deeper water. We’ll be close to shore most but not all of the time.

We’ll paddle about 3 hours at a leisurely pace with a stop midway for lunch.  Boats should be at least 14 feet with flotation and should have bow and stern grab loops and/or deck lines.

.Level 1 PLUS due to distance (8 miles more or less).   Location may be changed if required by weather conditions. 

Be sure to bring plenty of water, a face mask, lunch/snack, sunscreen, bug repellent, footwear that will protect you against possible oyster shells at take outs, and clothing that will keep you warm if you get wet.   A waterproof outer shell is a very good idea.

Please RSVP on club website.

Limit:  6 paddlers.
