Paddle Board& Kayak ECO Tours

2016 LYC Paddle Board& Kayak ECO Tours Overview

Conduct paddle board & kayak ECO tours in partnership with Save Barnegat Bay.  Each tour will begin with a presentation by Save Barnegat Bay on the LYC porch addressing the current state of the bay, what lies ahead and how we can all help improve the state of the bay.

The tours will focus on nearby sedge islands and the shoreline to avoid power boats and jet skis.  Each tour will end with an optional ‘fun race’.

We will make best effort to have a local provider deliver kayaks and paddle boards based upon registrations that occur no later than June 18.

Paddle Board Coordinator – Lisa Gardner; Kayak Coordinators: Tim Newman & Larry Oliver; and Program Coordinator – George Anderson

This should be a fun and educational experience. 

 
First Tour Registration

Our first tour is set for June 25th beginning at 9 AM.  Basic training to pilot a kayak or paddle board will be available from 8 AM – 9 AM on the LYC porch.

The event is limited to LYC members and their children 14 years and older; Any participant between the age of 14 – 18 must be accompanied by a parent.  You can register via the form below until June 18.  Please indicate if you are interested in renting a craft from a local provider and we will make best effort to orchestrate the desired rentals.

 
Yakkity Yaks Kayak Rental is a Lavallette based provider that can be reached at (732) 830-1835.

Paddleboard Questionaire

Fields marked with an * are required

If you are new  to paddling, can you stand for a fairly long period
of time or do you need to go to your knees periodically for balance?
