September 24, 2019 - Japan: 6000 Islands, 6000 Miles of Coastline. Seems Like a Natural Place to Paddle!

Japan rarely appears on kayakers' radar as a place to paddle. That is about to change! At our September meeting, Jack Sanders will share his experiences kayaking and traveling in Japan.

Jack is a long-time sea kayaker and a member of the Oregon Ocean Paddling Society in Portland. He first traveled to Japan in 1990 as a photographer and videographer, and he has been taking small groups to Japan since 1999, first with a cultural focus and then with an outdoor focus (hiking and kayaking). In his program, he will share information about where to kayak and how to travel independently in Japan, as well as slides and videos of places he has kayaked and traveled.

January 2020 (exact date TBD) - The Annual Trip-Planning Party

No, it's not a meeting as such - but it is probably the club's most important event of the year: our annual trip planning party. Know of a spectacular vista? Have an idea for a fun, community-oriented paddle? Want to share your favorite rock garden? Just want to learn more about what's involved in leading a trip? Come! Have pizza with us! Urban Duwamish explorer, Olympic Peninsula surfer, Friday Harbor daytripper, or hardcore WWTA trekker - it doesn't matter. We need all levels of participation, and would love for you to come. See the newsletter for details!
