Registration is closed

 This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification (except for level 1 trips when the paddler is not using a spray skirt....if the paddler is wearing a spray skirt on a level 1 paddle, the Wet Exit Certification is REQUIRED).  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 if you intend to wear a spray skirt.  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.

Activity Title: Pre-twilight Willamette Paddle
Date of Activity: 7/27/2021
Narrative: Please join Bob and me for a pre-twilight paddle on the Willamette. We'll meet next Tuesday at 6 pm at Willamette Park in West Linn and paddle upriver thru the narrows. Round trip will be approximately 6 miles. We'll arrive back at our launch by 8:30 pm, about 15 minutes before sunset. Lights for boats will not be required, but you are welcome to bring some just for affect. Currents in this area are very mild this time of year. Water temps are in mid-70s. Parking is free and there are restrooms. Completing a gentle paddle close to sunset on a beautiful area of the river should be a nice finish for the day.
