Description A day paddle to mark the Winter Solstice. We will put in at the April Pt boat launch and meander the islands and currents (very minimal all day) of Gowland Harbour. Daylight will be in short supply while the tide will be near high most of the day! Hopefully there will be plenty of birds and mammals to observe.
Meeting Place April Point boat launch
Departure Time 1030 meet up; on the water by 1100
Difficulty
Considering the season and currents, lets call this moderate.
Costs Nil
Trip limits 8
Dogs? Only very strong swimmers!
Notes: This trip will be weather dependent! Paddling in a snow flurry can be more pleasant than in rain but lets look for light winds and some sun.
Be prepared for the weather; carry your snacks in the cockpit; staying warm and dry will be our our primary concern and will dictate the length of the outing.
