Our leader will introduce the Plan and make sure everyone is comfortable with the requirements and any concerns that you may have. Please stay off the water until we are all ready. The leader may choose to enlist helpers and establish communications protocol. If you have VHF radio please bring it with you.
Plan A:
New SISKA members (joined during the past 12 months) will be given preference when registering for this paddle.
Our long time members may also register.

Becher Bay remains one of my favourite local paddles. There’s a feeling of West Coast Wild just a short drive away. An abundance of wildlife and nearly always a sheltered place to paddle out of the wind are bonuses. We’ll be stopping to smell the seaweed on this paddle, allowing plenty of time for new members to get to know each other. There is a $10 launch fee at Cheanuh Marina (spirit bay).

Plan B:
If we can’t paddle within the bay, it’s likely too windy to paddle safely anywhere, so we’ll likely cancel.
