Solitude on Lake Powell
But . . . It's Always Worth It, Shoshone Lake Yellowstone
Always Prepare for Rain, Lake Granby
Getting There is Half the Fun
Fun Off the Water Too
Think It Will All Fit?
When you kayak with the Rocky Mountain Sea Kayak Club you are joining a trip or day paddle planned by a Trip Organizer which provides an opportunity to paddle with congenial people and enjoy safety in numbers. Please remember, however, that our Trip Organizers are volunteers and aren't specifically trained, certified, or pre-qualified by the RMSKC with regard to their abilities as either kayakers or organizers. Therefore, trip participants are ultimately responsible for themselves and must self-evaluate their abilities and readiness for any trip. Having people on a trip who are not prepared, skill-wise or equipment-wise, or who are not willing to paddle as a member of the group, puts all the participants at risk. For more general thoughts on paddling in a group and specifics for safe paddling, read the RMSKC's Participant Guidelines. Additional safety topics can be found on the Safety Links page.
When thinking about joining a trip or day paddle, contact the Trip Organizer to ask about the trip requirements which will help you determine if the trip is a good fit for your abilities and equipment. Please RSVP the Trip Organizer so you can be kept aware of any changes to the trip plan. The Trip Organizer will validate your RMSKC membership as well as your ACA membership and signed waiver.
As always, Starting Time means "in the water and ready to go". Please plan to get to the launch site in time to unload your boat, move your car, pack your kayak, and get geared up.
For Non-Members: If you are not a member of the RMSKC but you are interested in paddling with the Club on a day trip we welcome you. It's a good way to get a taste of what our outings are like. Check the Calendar page for requirements for non-members on a day paddle. If you are interested in an RMSKC multi-day trip, you will need to join the Club and the ACA (see the Membership page).
