Luhr Landing: 9AM

SK III, 8 nm.  If weather conditions are favorable, we will cross from Luhr Landing to Anderson Island to lunch at Andy Anderson park.  This paddle is appropriate for confident students from this year's Basic Class and counts as an experience paddle.  Priority will be given to Olympia Students.  If wind is likely to be too strong, we will instead paddle E along the shore to, and beyond, Tolmie park.

The route to Anderson Island is rated at SK III only because of two open water crossings, the longer of the two being 2nm.

Luhr Landing is at: 4949 D Milluhr Rd NE, Olympia, WA 98516

A Discover Pass is required.  Parking might be limited given this is Memorial Day weekend.  Carpooling is encouraged.
