Lake Hood (Kayaking) – Day Trip – Postponed
November 12, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
NOTE: This trip has been postponed. It is likely to take place early in 2023, though a date has not yet been set.
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.)
Note: If the weather is unsuitable on 12/11,the postponement date is 13/11.
