    This class is limited to OOPS members.  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account.

    Narrative:  Possibly you have planned a trip using a chart or map to figure out where you want to go, but how do you figure out where you *are* when you actually get out on the water, and how far it is until you get to your lunch stop?

    In this class we will review how to read a nautical chart, practice using a compass to navigate with a nautical chart, talk about what you do while you are paddling, and how to account for wind, current, and tides in your navigation and trip planning.

    Please bring your laptop computer, one or two nautical charts (if you have any), some scratch paper, and a compass (if you have one).

    This class will happen in a classroom – there is no reason to bring a boat with you or dress for the water.

    No food is allowed in the classroom – plan to eat lunch after the class. There are plenty of restaurants across the street if to don't want to eat at home.

    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:
    Join me and Bob Freshman for a paddle up the Blind Slough located on the lower Columbia River about 15 miles east of Astoria. It's a pleasant 2 hour drive from Portland. We'll meet sharply at 10:30 am at Knappa Docks at the end of Knappa Dock Rd. From there we'll launch onto the Columbia River and paddle upstream about a half mile to the mouth of the slough. Once there, we'll paddle up the slough past one of the best examples of a Sitka Spruce swamp remaining in Oregon. The slough is also home to "net pens", where fingerling salmon are raised before being released to head to the Pacific. Since it's located near the Lewis and Clark National Wildlife Refuge, there are plenty of birding opportunities as well.

    Origin of the name Blind Slough: "... Blind Slough opens off the Prairie Channel of the Columbia River about halfway between Knappa and Brownsmead. The slough wanders about a good deal and gets nowhere in particular. One fair-sized branch pinches out suddenly, and that was probably the reason for the name. ..."

    So we will also meander up the slough as far as we want, search for a suitable takeout, relax and then head back to our launch. Total distance for this trip will be about 8 miles. Total time on the water will be about 4 hours. Parking is limited and there are no restrooms. If you can put together a carpool, please do so. We will be doing a shore launch only. There is no launching from the derelict Knappa Dock.

    This is an opportunity to practice whatever skills you wish in warm water. We have the entire 8-lane pool for our OOPS group, so there should be ample room for 12 boats. Wet Exit certifications may be done here. Please indicate your request when registering. There is a button on the registration form, select Yes if you need Wet Exit Certification.

    Cost will be $12 per person - with boat. There will be no cancellations, since we are trying to set up an ongoing relationship with Tualatin Pool, and prepayment was required for the first session.

    The session starts at 4:15 PM, so try to show up by 4 PM to thoroughly spray down your kayak and be ready to hit the water when the session starts.

    Paddle People is an outlet for sharing our enthusiasm for paddling and our love for the Pacific Northwest with others. We believe in “Recreational Therapy” and that just being in nature, especially being on the water, is the best medicine for our high stress lives. We are always trying to figure out how to spend more time in our boats, and less time in the rat race. Let us know how we can help you get out on the water more often too.

    Bill O'Brien Paddled the coast from Canada to Mexico

    Some interesting information about Bill

    I have always, from first memory, loved the outdoors and spent as much time as I could exploring, observing nature, and pursuing adventure.  I was 10 when I first backpacked, which was in the Three Sisters Wilderness.  I remembered looking above treeline and knew I would go there some day.  I started climbing and telemarking right out of high school.  In college I decided to some day hike the PCT, cycle across the US, and paddle the Inside Passage, though I had yet to paddle anything.  I subscribed to Sea Kayaker magazine a few years before I actually paddled, but I felt certain this was in my future.

    However, due largely due to my closest friends' interests, other water sports came first.  I rafted seriously for a few years followed by 25 years of windsurfing at the gorge, mostly.  I also dove and upon joining the Albany Fire Dept. became a founding member of their dive rescue and swift-water rescue teams in the mid 80's. I was a practicing paramedic there for 28 years.  This dovetailed into about 25 years of ski patrol and 10 years mountain rescue, which ended for me after the trauma of the Episcopal School Rescue that claimed 9 lives.  And all of this dovetailed beautifully into sea kayaking. I was accustomed to be frequently in the water and to regularly experience far rougher wind and waves than one would ever likely to see while sea kayaking. The fire service gave experience in risk assessment and management.

    Strangely, it took having small children to finally start.  My daughter's daycare friend's parents suggested to us that sea kayaking touring would be a great way to get back into the wilderness - as a family. We bought a used triple from Alder Creek and for years headed up to British Columbia wilderness including Haida Guaii.  At first our kids shared the center cockpit (3 + 6 y/o), then the front of two Folbot doubles with sails.

    Then we got singles.  My wife got the first, a 16 ft. fiberglass SOT. Then I got a 19 ft. surfski, a fast ocean style of racing SOT.  I wasted little time getting into the ocean, solo at first.  Outside of family kayak camping, I didn't start kayak camping until my last kids left the nest and I retired.

    Having long ago hit my goals of backpacking the Pacific Crest Trail, and long distance cycling, from Reedsport, OR to St. John's Newfoundland, it was time for long distance paddling.  It started out by paddling around Brook's Peninsula and on down to Tofino. Then supporting Bob Weinmann in his journey, which was skiing from the summit of Mt. Hood, whitewater paddling to the Columbia, then sea kayaking to the California border, gave me the idea to paddle the West Coast of the US plus the West Coast of Vancouver Island. This last summer this was extended to include the outside passage with a crossing to Port Hardy. This differed in that there were many sections, all strung together in a non-contiguous connecting the dots manner. Each section had worries, non more worrying than the section from Ventura, CA to the Mexican border and its lack of legal camping opportunities that had us talking on the fly to every agency official imaginal and having to get creative. My wife joined me on some of the legs including several long Channel Island trips. We used a Pygmy double, then a Tsunami Ranger double SOT.

    SUMMER MULTI-DAY OOPS T.O. TRAINING AND CAMPING EVENT

     June 11-14, 2020

    Join us this summer for three days of Trip Organizer training and camping at Nehalem Bay State Park, June 11-14, 2020.

    OOPS is pleased to offer the Trip Organizer training condensed into three consecutive days. This event is set up with both on-water and on-land class activities for 3 full days. (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday [until 4:30]).  Land-based training will cover the Paddler Development Workshop and Trip Planning. Water-based training includes Rescue Workshop and Group Management. This event will provide you with the groundwork to become a Trip Organizer and assist you to be both an asset on paddling trips and prepare you to start planning and organizing mentored paddles.

    Training and practicing together can build skill and confidence, plus it’s fun!

    There will be two dinner potlucks, and campfires are included.

    Camping includes 3 nights: Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 

    If you have any questions about the event or trip organizer training process, feel free to contact me directly. Jillian girlonawalk@hotmail.com

    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 October 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.
