Celebrate World Paddle For The Planet on Lake Powell Sept. 13

September 8, 2014

worldpaddleIn celebration of Wold Paddle For The Planet, join local paddlers on Lake Powell at 12 Noon Sept. 13. Come with a purpose and enjoy fellow camaraderie.

Launch will by  at the public park north of Panama City Beach Publix. To get to the launch point, from US 98 in PCB, take Lake Powell Drive north; turn W on Lakeview Drive, and go to the park at the end of the road.

Arrive in time to launch at 12 Noon into Lake Powell as a group, paddle one mile northwest and west to Camp Helen State Park. Come ashore and enjoy a simple lunch of cold chicken or cheese and fruit and water, spend some quality time on shore with the rest of your family and friends if they drove to Camp Helen, and then paddle back to the put-in. The return paddle will be unstructured, since some may want to play at the park longer than others.

The mission of WPFTP is for each of us to pick a change that will better the way we live on this planet, and paddle for that change. We will try to get media coverage of all the changes we are paddling for, so try to have your change picked out before the day of the paddle. Paddlers all across the globe are launching at noon in their time zone, just like us, all paddling for change. We are helping to send a wave of change around the planet.

All paddle craft welcome – SUP, kayak, canoe, anything paddle-powered!
