Details *Level 2 Paddle. See below for a description of experience required. This is ideal for the new(ish) kayaker, or a more experienced paddler looking for a slower, more relaxing evening paddle. If you have never kayaked before please take our basic safety & rescue course before joining. Contact me at ksieber@kskayaks.com to schedule a date, or call me at 843-834-0064. We will launch from the Shem Creek public boat launch at 6pm, paddle down Shem Creek and out into the harbor, and head towards the historic Yorktown battleship. If you have never seen it from the water this is a MUST DO! We would like to be on the water by 6pm. Please arrive with enough time to unload and park for a timely departure. Plan to be on the water for about 2 hours. This Meetup is free of charge for Coastal Kayak Club members! If you don't have your own equipment there are a limited number of boats available for rental. If you have any questions please message Kendra. The rental fee is $45. *We will deliver the kayak to the MeetUp launch location. *Please provide your cell phone number so we can contact you with any last minute changes (weather, traffic delays etc...) As always: This is a MeetUp event and you are responsible for your own safety. Life jackets must be fitted properly and worn at all times. Part of this paddle will be at night so please have the correct lighting. *Level 1: Sheltered, calm waters - leisurely pace - distances typically 3 - 5 total miles. *Level 2: Sheltered, semi-sheltered or semi-open waters - leisurely to moderate pace - distances typically 4 – 6miles. The Level 2 paddler should have a reliable self rescue in the event of capsize. *Level 3: Semi-open or open waters. Winds up to 15 knots and waves or swells less than 3 feet - consistent moderate pace - distances in excess of 10 – 15 miles. The level three paddler should have a reliable self-recovery technique as well as training in assisting others in rescue situations.
