Notes: Lets try to carpool to save fuel – carbon footprint – and space at the boat launch parking. If you can take 2 kayak, set it up with your paddling partner or let me know. I can pick up 1 passenger/kayak.

**All participants must review and conform to QIOC paddling guidelines. Only ‘sea kayaks’ with skirts for this trip, as weather can change quickly with the potential for strong northwesterly winds. If you have not paddled with the coordinator previously, please contact Vic no later than August 16. All participants must contact the coordinator by email (preferably) or by phone to confirm participation no later than August 19th. The trip will be cancelled if Environment Canada forecast winds for Johnstone Strait are higher than 15 knots, or steady rain is expected. Participants will be informed by 7 p.m. on Aug 20 if the trip will be cancelled.
