Sea Kayak - Goat Island

Successful 9 mile paddle to mysterious Goat Island, starting and ending at La Conner. The weather was glorious and the tide ever in our favor, with our speed often exceeding 4 mph (and at one point well over 6). We did have to change the return route due to some serious driftwood blocking the fishway. Great for some on the water practice taking bearings, using the rule of thirds, course correcting with ranges, and taking advantage of tidal current assist. Thanks to Bill Coady for running sweep on this paddle and to participants Sara, James, Kathryn, Colleen, Celeste, and Josh for their willingness to flex on the trip plan. Pix from the trip are posted on the EMSK Facebook group site.
