Lake Hood (Kayaking) – Day Trip

November 12 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Colin will be taking this outing, and has supplied the following information …

Introduction to Sea Kayaking

Limited numbers of kayaks and lifejackets are available – so first-come, first-served.  If you have your own kayak please bring it.  I can transport your kayak, provided you bring it to my place at least one day before event.  If you don’t have a kayak, the cost for kayak and equipment hire is  $20/person.

What to wear:  Wool or polypropylene.  No cotton, as this gets cold when wet.  Wear layers as when tramping, but pay attention to the underarm area as this is where chaffing occurs.  Bring a light wind breaker, and wear water shoes (or soft shoes if desired).

What to bring:  Hat, sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses (water reflects sunlight), bottle or two of water, lunch and snacks.  Also bring a small amount of money – as a café stop maybe required!  A towel and a change of cloths would be advisable, as you may be wet by the end of the trip.  Bring a life jacket if you have a suitable one.  (Note: Kayaking life jackets are shorter in the body, due to the seating position.)

Leader: Colin

Note:  If the weather is unsuitable on 12/11,the postponement date is 13/11.
