CLUB PADDLES & EVENTS

Disclaimer
The Long Island Paddlers is not a professional paddling organization.  Our members coordinate paddles for their own enjoyment and the enjoyment of the rest of the paddling community.  Skill sessions, while a great way to learn, are not run by professional instructors.  The trip coordinators are not professional guides or instructors.  Many of them are highly skilled and experienced paddlers, but they do not have any professional credentials.  You choose to join the Long Island Paddlers coordinated trips at your own risk.    The use of alcohol and drugs on club paddles is prohibited

Paddling is a lot of fun, but there are certain guidelines and rules that should be followed.  First, read about Trip Levels to make sure you are capable of completing the paddle trip as planned.  Second, read Paddling Guidelines so that you know what equipment is necessary for a safe and successful paddle.  If you wish to bring a non-member as a guest, please contact the trip leader directly before the trip.

All trips are subject to weather conditions.  Trip leaders will notify all attendees of any changes reflecting the trip via email.

Clean up of Upper Nissequogue in Caleb Smith S.P.
 
Date:
Sunday 10/22/2017    (Login for Time details)
 
Leader:
Liz Marcellus
 
Details:
Trip limited to 10 attendees.  This is a river clean up of the upper Nissequogue river... one of only two times per year that anyone is allowed to kayak down this portion of the river through the South side of Caleb Smith State Park ....for clean ups only.
We start at the dam at the north end of Stump pond(new Millpond) and end up in the pond(Phillips Millpond) by the mill just up river from Paul T Givens park. It’s a spot quite unlike any other on Long Island and definitely a gem. The narrow, winding, obstacle laden and fast moving water will challenge your skills too !
Be prepared to get in and out of your boat especially if water level is low. Canoes or small boats only. No long sea kayaks. Cleanup equipment and bags are provided. Gloves and UV sunglasses or hat are recommended. Must dress for the water/weather and wear PFD and bring extra clothes. Bring a light lunch or snack for a stop midway.
