Time for a pre-Independence Day paddle in Bellingham Bay. Wednesday‘s forecast calls for sunshine and mild breezes. Lovely conditions for being on the water. First launch is at 5pm. Hope to see you there. As usual, the route will go south along the shore of Bellingham Bay to Clark‘s Point and back. Moderate pace (3-4 knots or whatever the group decides). Be sure to RSVP. With the summer season, parking at Boulevard Park is pretty tight. Consider the CBC launch as the easier option (although that‘s pretty busy, too). When: Wed., July 3. 5pm launch from south-end beach at Boulevard Park. Stopping at the Community Boat Center launch around 5:05 to pick up anyone leaving from there. Please be ready to launch on time. Route: Southbound along the shore to the end of Clark‘s Point (around 6.5 miles). Conditions: Sun with some clouds, wind 3-5 knots. Dress: Be ready for warm air and cold water. Always a pain to dress properly for this. Neoprene and/or a dry top or drysuit recommended. If you are gear limited, email me and I might have something you can use. Skill Level: Level 2. RSVP: Please text, call or email Warren Cornwall at 360-296-0522, cornwallw@gmail.com

Supposed to be hot and sunny this weekend. I‘d like to float the Skagit from about Marblemount toward Concrete. Would need to coordinate a shuttle if anyone is interested. I‘d be using a 12‘ hybrid sea/river kayak. A sea kayak or whitewater kayak would be fine. -Jeremy Boyer at jerboy2468@gmail.com

No takers on Skagit river. So tomorrow Sunday 7/7 meet at Cherry Pt beach from Gulf Rd. 10am, launch by 10:30. No boat launch. Could be some haul over rocky mud flat but is positive tide height at launch and landing a few hours later. I paddle slow and leisurely. Like bird watching, looking down into kelp for marine life. Easy paddling. Boat haul probably hardest part. Back at beach about 2:30-3pm. Must RSVP. -Jeremy Boyer at jerboy2468@gmail.com or text (360)223-4069

Tomorrow Sunday 7/14 Semiahmoo near Blaine south towards Birch Bay. It‘ll be a rare tidal situation that‘s not low tide mudflats in afternoon. Positive tides all day. Launch at Semiahmoo spit park at 10am paddle for 4-5 few hours. Water is warm here so could practice some wet exits and rescues. About 14 miles RT if we cross the bay to interesting Pt Whitehorn. 11 miles if turn around at north side of Birch Bay. Not a technically difficult trip but dress for immersion, be ready to paddle against sea breezes. I‘m not a "full speed ahead "paddler.
