Meet at the Washington Park boat launch for a 8:45 AM shore talk and 9:00AM launch.

This trip is for Seattle Sea Kayak Leaders (and aspiring).  There is no agenda beyond a trip where we can paddle with our friends. 

Note that I’ve set maximum wind at 35kts.  This is a great place to practice paddling in strong winds.  If we have a good blow from the straight, we’ll launch from the south side of Anacortes into protected waters and venture into conditions.
