Come join the Pirates of Arundell
October 10, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm
HULLO – the Pirates of Arundell start our regular Wednesday outings in May !
Locations vary each Wednesday, as we paddle on different rivers near Annapolis MD in Anne Arundel County, accessing kayak launches at local county parks, and several members’ private community beaches.
Everyone is welcome !
Basic CPA rules apply (wearing a PFD, spray skirt & weather appropriate clothing!); water & sunscreen AND a marine radio – to keep in contact- IS always welcome !!
If unfamiliar with the launch spot, dealing with a large amount of boat traffic, open water & wind issues, or concerned about using a kayak-spray skirt, basic paddling techniques, safety issues, please let us know & come join us to learn more- our paddlers will help everyone. If you wish to learn more about rolling for fun and doing a “wet- exit” if & when your kayak tips over – just ask…
We are a sea-kayaking club, so most kayaks run 13-17 feet long -for ease & quick traveling over distances on open water. Our week- day paddles may be 4-6-8 miles along shoreline & may include open water crossings. Some folks go shorter distances to quiet creeks – just choose.
As the waters warm up & daylights grows, we launch earlier to have more time on the water. Some “retired” folks paddle a full day worth of 12-15 miles & return to paddle more with the group. Usually we meet & launch between 4-5 pm with whoever shows up at the time. Some folks arrive later as their work schedule allows & others may paddle till dusk. There is no single organized outing.
Weather dependent we are ! If it is raining, threatening thunderstorms & lightening, everyone may be stuck on beach. There is not always time to cancel well ahead. If it raining that day, please consider doing something else fun !
We gather after paddling for a shared potluck light supper fare- salads, crackers, cheese, chips, veggies, cookies, hot-dogs, sushi, subs, pizza, you- name-it, fresh fruit, are all welcome. Ha – there are rarely leftovers !
Our weekly schedule launch details will vary – stay tuned !
