    Is anyone from the South Island thinking of going to this event?

    I was pondering going, and have space for an extra kayak and gear ( I have a Jeep Patriot).
    Especially as parking may be an issue, would be great to have a paddle partner to go over with. I would be open to a Friday to Sunday deal, there are 100 spots open, with about 50 or so left.
    If any interest, PM me.Thx

    I will be paddling over to Newcastle Isl. from the Brechin Boat ramp or the launch on Cypress Street off Stewart Ave on Friday around 5:00PM and staying for the weekend.

    Hi Evan, I found a buddy to come up from Victoria with, so I am good to go! I was looking to share the ride up, and as you are a Nanaimo paddler, that would not help too much. Yeah, we assume parking is going to be bad. We are hoping to be OTW well before 5, but I will look for you. I will be with my paddling coach and bud, Jo. I paddle a green Delta 16, and she always has wild painted hair! So, by all means say hi, if you see us!
    Thanks for the offer of paddling out together though. Cheers.
