Low bridge… everybody grab your friends and come paddle along the scenic Erie Canal in Fairport.
Meet at the Erie Canal Boat Company for a relaxed paddle. This event is guaranteed fun for ALL SKILL LEVELS, from first-timer to advanced. This is a rain-or-shine event — You’d be surprised how much fun it can be to paddle in the rain! After the paddle, we’ll refresh at Mulconry's Irish Pub.
Kayaks are available for rental, or feel free to bring your own kayak or canoe. This event is open to everyone. Nonmembers are welcome … so bring your friends!*
Please Arrive No Later Than 6:00pm. We will launch at 6:30 sharp and be out for 2 hours. Contact David ahead of time if this might be an issue. This is a rain-or-shine event. In case of lightning or extreme weather, we will skip the paddling and make it a social event.
RSVP to David by Monday, June 8: Davidschott@rochester.rr.com, or 585-314-8092.
***Please indicate whether you are renting or bringing your own boat.***
Rentals are limited. Please RSVP to ensure a boat will be available.
Rentals are $15 (half-price) and include kayak, paddle and life jacket.
The rental kayaks are very stable. If you do tip over, they are easy to exit and re-enter. Remember the paddling is a water sport, so come prepared to get wet! (see “what to wear” below.)
*If there is a wait-list for rentals, ADK members have priority.
WHAT TO WEAR: Wear moisture-wicking clothes, and leave a spare set of clothes and a towel in your car. This way if you were to tip over or get wet while on the paddle you would have something comfortable to change into. Shoes should be something you are not afraid to get wet or muddy.
