2019 Kayak Schedule

Join your Hudson Valley and Tailsweeper friends on the water.

This year we have an ambitious schedule as a result of the input we received at our annual kayak planning meeting. There are a total of 18 planned  trips and some possible moonlight trips.  Yvonne will keep you posted regarding these (moonlight paddles).  Most of the midweek trips start at 2 pm. while the weekend trips usually start at 10 am.  Be sure to check this schedule for each trip as times do vary.  We shove off at the times shown for each trip so plan on being at each event a half hour before the scheduled departure time so you have time to unpack and get ready to rumble!!

     Dates, places, times, and description are noted below.  Trips are usually a go if it is sunny, cloudy, or a little bit of rain.  They are cancelled if weather is not conducive to paddling!  Make sure you have the proper equipment to paddle. Life jacket a must.
