11:00 AM at Titlow Park

We'll drift the narrows, starting at Titlow beach, heading north and having a long lunch near point defiance.  We'll play in the eddy at the point on the early flood before heading back to Titlow Beach.  The currents in the narrows will be approximately 6.5 knots, making this a SK-V paddle.  Helmets will be required due to possible rough conditions during rescues.  Dry suits are required on all my paddles.
