    This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification.  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.

    Narrative: We will launch from Steamboat Landing on the Columbia River near Washougal, WA. There are rest rooms, and a dock connected to shore by a sloping walkway. The plan is to paddle upstream on the Columbia to the east end of Reed Island via the channel between the island and the Washington shore. Lunch somewhere on the upstream end of the island, then around the island and back to Steamboat Landing via the main channel of the Columbia River. This is about an eight mile trip and should take about 4 hours or so.
    Bring your full winter paddling kit, including extra clothes, towline if you have one, and chocolate.

    This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification.  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.Narrative: Come play in the mouth of Nehalem Bay. This is a good paddle for folks to check out the surf, play a bit, work on skills or just watch. 
    We will launch from Nehalem State Park boat ramp ($5 parking) and journey to the mouth of the bay about two miles away. There is a sandy shoal at the mouth by the jetty, where the waves break, that covers as the tide rises. Because the waves break several times before they enter the mouth, the energy is lower and on the flood it is a fun place to play, even on a big day. 
    It is also possible to hold position on the side away from the breaks to watch and pick your own level of challenge. This is a small area and it changes rapidly with the tide. 
    As this is a coastal area at a river mouth, paddling in current and wind is to be expected. 
    We will paddle against the flood on our way out keeping to the shoreline and paddle back with it. This paddle is planned during the flood and, although we may not stop for a formal lunch, it is often possible to land at several sandy spots. Getting knocked over a few times can be tiring, so it won't be too long a day. 
    Google Maps shows the area well, if you are interested. 
    Afterward, we will likely find ourselves in Manzanita for an after paddle refreshment and gathering. As with any paddle, be sure to keep an eye on conditions for the day.

    OOPS General Meetings are free and open to all.

    The Columbia River Bar Pilots were established in 1846 to ensure the safety of ships, crews and cargoes crossing the treacherous Columbia River Bar, which is recognized as one of the most dangerous and challenging navigated stretches of water in the world. Bar Pilot Captain Dan Jordan will be presenting at our February meeting, we think you will find this a most fascinating experience. Many OOPS members have paddled various stretches of the Columbia River in a variety of conditions but safely guiding an 800 foot long ship over the bar is something very few people have ever done.

    Captain Jordan spent twenty-four years at sea in the Merchant Marine with twelve of these years as captain of freighters trading all over the world. During this time, he concurrently served as an officer in the Navy Reserve where some of his assignments were as an instructor at the Navy’s Shiphandling School. Captain Jordan has been a Columbia River Bar Pilot for the past fourteen years and is involved in many maritime related issues. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the Columbia River Maritime Museum and has served as Chair of the Lower Columbia Region Harbor Safety Committee and as the Vice President of the Council of American Master Mariners.

    This program is for OOPS Trip Organizers only.  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Trip Organizers" group.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment. 

    Instructor Development Program – Multi-day Training for Trip Organizers (Level 1-2 Class)

    OOPS needs a self-sustaining community of kayak instructors to support the training needs of OOPS.  Based on years of running instructor programs for the ACA, we’ve come up with the following modified program for OOPS (i.e. not affiliated with ACA).

    An on-water class is a trip.  Hence, before becoming an instructor, a candidate must be a Trip Organizer within OOPS.

    The instructor training process can be broken down into the following components:

    ·         A strokes workshop: A daylong session to go over the core set of strokes in kayaking. 

    ·         A coaching workshop: A daylong session to cover how to introduce strokes and how to actively coach them.  We’ll also cover the “impromptu talk” used to cover the fundamental background knowledge kayakers should have.

    ·         A video analysis session to verify mastery of strokes but also to discuss how to assess strokes.

    ·         A rescues session focusing on how to teach the basic rescues (T, scramble, and paddle-float) but also how to carry the more advanced techniques a leader should know (scoop and hand-of-god).

    ·         At least one mentored class taught by the candidate.  Additional mentored classes as needed until the candidate is deemed ready to teach on his or her own.

    In the ACA system, this material was covered in a pair of intense, exhausting, three day weekends.  We believe it is better to do these as single day sessions spread out over a number of months so candidates can practice in between sessions.

    We will do this as a community effort.  That means, this is not driven by one or two “instructor trainers.”  Instead, our lead trainers will be supported by a team of mentors.  The mentors are experienced OOPS instructors who will work through the instructor series with the candidates and then teach with them during the final session to confirm that they are ready to lead classes on their own. Over time, the mentors will become instructor trainers and we will find new mentors.  This process will refresh itself over time creating the self-sustaining pipeline of kayak instructors in OOPS.

    We have selected the following dates for this program in 2019:

    ·         March 9.   Stroke workshop for future instructors.  Saturday 9 to 4 at Sauvie Island Boat Ramp

    ·         May 11.  Instructor Development workshop.  Saturday 9 to 5 at Sauvie Island Boat Ramp.

    ·         June 15.  Video stroke analysis, 9 AM Sauvie Island boat ramp. Videotaping at Pat’s house and viewing over lunch on Pat’s TV

    ·         June 16.  Mentor session: to talk about evaluation criteria and make sure all the mentors are all on the same page.  

    ·         July 13. Rescues session, location to be determined.  We’ll find warm, clean water and cover the essential set of rescues every instructor should master.  Then we’ll work on how to teach the basic T-rescue, the scramble rescue, and the paddle float rescue.

    Then we’d have the rest of the summer and fall for the mentored classes. 

    Notice that the instructor candidates must show up for all the session (except for the June 16 “mentor paddling session”).  The mentors, however, will split up the sessions between them.  I want a couple mentors at each session, so they get to know all of the candidates.  The group-size on the water, however, would be unwieldy if all the mentors showed up for every session.  Therefore, before the first session in March, the mentors will coordinate with Chris Mayou, OOPS Education Director, and work out a schedule of attendance with two mentors at each session.  That should get everyone lots of time with the students.

    The current set of mentors are Moulton Avery, Greg Clopton, Charles Congdon, Alan Fisher, Marlene Fisher, Chris Mayou, and Mel Wishan.

    The Lake is a unique feature of Oregon's geology, as it is in a steep canyon formed at the confluence of the Crooked River, the Metolius River, and the Deschutes River. It is known as a nesting and gathering place for Bald Eagles, and some locations on the lake offer stunning views of Mt. Jefferson to the west. Additional trips are often planned for neighboring Lake Simtustus.

    Paddling days will likely be May 18, 19, and 20 (Friday-Sunday).

    Orcas Island is one of the San Juan Islands which are nestled between Bellingham, Washington and Vancouver Island, British Columbia.  While Washington State land use laws provide for few legal kayak landings (most of the shoreline is privately owned), you will find this a paddler's paradise.  Lots of little islands await exploration, there are current, wind, and navigation challenges to satisfy paddlers of any level, and the chance to see some of the local orca pods (along with numerous sea lions).

    Paddling days will likely be Sept 5-7 (Thursday-Sunday).
