A pod of paddlers from the Rocky Mountain Sea Kayak Club will be visiting the Houston/Galveston area between March 11 and 15 and paddling with us on as many days as possible. Jud Hurd has been in contact with Paul Comstock and Carl Kuhnen to discuss organization and paddling locations. Number of visitors and intended paddling locations will be posted here when known.
Our visitors will be experienced well-prepared ACA members who would like to paddle a variety of our favorite locations. Those may include Lake Charlotte, Pelican Island Circumnavigation, Buffalo Bayou into downtown, Christmas Bay, Armand Bayou, Redfish Island, West Bay, etc.
Our joint trips may be run as official HASK trips or as informal paddles. In either case, we will need some experienced HASK trip leaders to lead or guide or provide logistical knowledge for each day's paddle. It would be great if we could provide at least one guide for each day. More specifics will be posted here when decided. If we decide to run these as official HASK paddles, those will be posted individually on each day as usual.
For now, please register here for this master event and consider which days you could paddle with the group and what trip you would like to guide.
