* Notes:

When given, map references (i.e. [22/D3] ) are the page number and grid coordinates of the launch point. References are to "Bryan's Sectional Maps of O'ahu", any recent edition.

Tides:
When tides differ by 2 feet or more, care should be taken while paddling in river mouths and near bay openings (such as Hawaii Kai and Pearl Harbor). Tide chart graphics are for Honolulu Harbor, and are not adjusted - windward-coast tides are approx. 1-1/2 to 2 hrs earlier than Honolulu. If you hover your mouse over the tide graphic, you MIGHT see the times adjusted, to the best of my ability, for the area of the launch (particularly for fishing or other Special Events). White bars on the charts indicate the times that the moon is visible for the Islands. Chart is courtesy Hawaiian Fishing News.
Jellyfish Watches: for some reason beyond the human ken, local box jellyfish have been noted to swarm on the 9th to 11th days after each full moon.

An all-seeing eye indicates that an aerial photo of the area is available. Hover to see file size - some can be rather large. A blue globe will open a view in a Google Earth window, if you have it installed on your computer (you should definitely have it - it's way cool, and it's free). A down-pointing arrow is a jump-link to a different place on the same page; an out-of-the-box arrow will take you to another page on this site; the same icon with a black border will take you off-site.

OTHER NOTES:

Paddle ratings are for average weather and ocean conditions, and are often unscientifically assigned and arbitrary. It is up to each individual to assess the conditions prior to the time of launch in the light of their own experience and ability, and decide whether to go or not. If you decide to go, you must sign the trip roster and read the waiver. No signee, no kayakee. In the event of a Small Craft Advisory (SCA) or higher wind warning*, the Club-sponsored paddle is officially cancelled. Trip leaders should download a copy of the release/waiver by clicking here for a PDF file you can print.

*As broadcast by Radio WBA on UHF weather channels 1 or 2, or announced the night before on commercial television.

"Steerage Board" meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every second month, except where otherwise noted, at the location given in the schedule. These meetings are for the Officers and Advisory Board members to discuss business and decide future activities for the Club, and they are open to any Club member in good standing who has a Club-related issue to be dealt with outside the forum of the General Meetings. Talk to any Club Officer for details, an agenda, or location directions.
