Title: June 12 - Newport Coastal Cruise changed to Rock Play
Post by: Gary on June 11, 2016, 03:01:05 PM
I am changing this trip to a rock play day. Helmets are required. The current wind and wave height predictions for tomorrow indicate it will be a day poorly suited for less experienced paddlers. Because of the foretasted conditions we will need to keep the group relatively close together all day. I will not be able to support exploratory paddling and rock play simultaneously. Launch time is 10am with a planned off the water time of about 4pm.  Please bring plenty of water to drink and some sort of before and after lunch snack (e.g. power bars in your PFD pocket)
