  • Easy

6:30pm  Meet at Concrete Beach, just north of the Seattle Mountaineer's Program Center near the fenced-in boat storage site.

  • A favorite for summertime skills practice, Wet Wednesdays are starting on June 4th!  Join us for an evening of practicing your new learned skills, or honing skills you’ve been striving to perfect in a fun, relaxed setting with like-minded paddlers. 

     For those of you who want something to focus on, the June 4th’ topic will be “Climbing around your Kayak”!

     Bring your own gear (I will have one boat to loan, contact me), including immersion gear.  Wetsuits ok if you know your limits for cold water lake immersion.
