Changes to Explore North Coast Bylaws

This year a committee on the ENC board reviewed the club’s bylaws and proposed some changes in order to simplify certain processes. We have a link of a draft to the proposed changes here for ENC members to review. If you have any questions or would like to discuss these bylaw changes, please contact John at The plan is to approve the changes by the next board meeting on July 14.

Upcoming Paddles

Please check our calendar for details about location, arrival time, launch time, if there are facilities, what to wear, etc. Each description will have the paddle host contact information in case you have questions.

June 4 — Rescue Practice
Launch at 10 a.m. at Stone Lagoon. Besides being an incredibly beautiful setting, Stone Lagoon is a great place to review all your skills. Keep your paddling skills from getting rusty or learn new ones as you practice getting back into your boat or help a paddle partner re-enter theirs. You can learn a lot by just observing, too. Visit the calendar for more details. RSVP by Thursday, June 2.

June 15 — Low Tide Paddle on Trinidad Bay
Launch at 6:30 a.m. at Trinidad
With a minus tide, we will spend our time poking around the rocks in the harbor looking for exposed sea-life that is not typically observable and plan on staying within the relatively protected harbor area. Come dressed for unexpected immersion. As always, PFD and whistle are requirements; a helmet and bilge pump are recommended. The trip leader will have spare paddles, tow-line and other safety gear but if you want to bring your own please do. If anyone is interested we may work on some open water rescue/self-rescue/towing. RSVP by Monday, June 13.

Remember your life jacket!
