Hammersley Flush

Don Erickson: “Two paddlers launched from Shelton and paddled through Hammersley Flush on a 5 knot ebb current and down Pickering Channel to the Hope Island State Park, where we had a leisurely lunch and walk on the beach before returning to Shelton on the flood current. A stiff headwind in Hammersley Inlet made our return to Shelton challenging.”

Mike Beeler: “What a great trip 18.33 miles or 16 knot miles. Lots of eddies and boils to play in. Had lunch at Hope Island and saw a lot of sea life at the beach. Had a good head wind on the way back that blew against the tide to give us a little more practice on bracing and paddle technique. Thanks again Don for that great trip.”
