Seattle Ship Canal Paddle


Seven kayakers set out on March 12 on a blustery day, intending to paddle around Portage Bay and Lake Union. We got half way up Portage Bay when the wind blew up and we had to turn around. We pushed back into 15-20 mph winds, but beating against the wind and waves proved tiring and four paddlers aborted early. Consequently, we only made about 2.5 miles of our planned 10-mile paddle, but we all returned home safely and with renewed respect for Mother Nature in her wilder moods.
