Winter paddling: There are 4 LED lights in the boat shed that attach to the amas. Please use them! We now have lights in the compound, making getting those locks undone much easier.
Small boat paddling - don't paddle alone! Carry (preferably wear) life jackets. Have a light or two or three on you. Let someone know when you are going out and your expected return time.
What to wear: Dress in comfortable layers. Fleece and polypropylene are good fabric choices, please do not wear cotton! On rainy or misty days a waterproof shell is advisable, and even on clear days some splashing is unavoidable so you may want to bring one. Your feet are likely get at least a little wet. In summer, flip-flops will do. In cooler weather, neoprene booties make for a comfortable outing, wool socks with Tevas work too. A mesh paddling baseball-type hat will keep the sun off in summer and a hat of some form will keep the heat in during cooler months. Once you've been paddling for 10 or so minutes you will probably want to shed a layer, and a small dry bag will give you a good place to put it.
Always be sure to bring a change of clothes to keep in your car or the locker so you can stay warm once you hit the beach. We have shower facilities!
