L2 Paddle Sunshine Coast - Sechelt Inlet Mid

  • July 18, 2019
  • 8:15 AM - 3:00 PM

Registration for Event Trips is done at the event.  Wet Exit Certification Required.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may ask 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 communicate change to all participants before the trip. 

Narrative: Leave camp at 8:00, arrive at Tillicum Bay Marina at 8:15, be on the water by 9:00 at Tillicum Bay, then follow the coast north, stopping as desired at Mt Richardson Provincial Park beaches and restrooms. We’ll go at least to the petroglyphs and optionally to 9 point marina. Return along the same route back to the take-out. Going north we will have some small following current starting from high tide at 8:51 am (Porpoise Bay), but returning we may be fighting some increasing thermal wind. The trip will be about 11 miles and we should be off the water in about 6 hours or less (15:00 or earlier). If the wind appears to be picking up too much, we’ll turn around earlier than planned.
