Kayak support Albion urchin removal event
« on: May 31, 2018, 12:26:37 PM »
I am coordinating the kayak support for the urchin removal event in Albion. If you are interested in helping out, you can support the event by shuttling urchin via kayak from the divers to nearby boats were the crushing will take place. If you don\'t have a kayak we may be able to come up with some loaners. Anyone interested please post here with a any questions or comments.

yes, but with the distance and the huge open sand Chanel boats will be helpful, as it s a distance from the beach to the urchin barrens and that would make for a lot of paddling for kayak'ers. I was thinking Boats anchor up on the Chanel and kayak'ers pick up bags from divers and then deliver to boats and then the boats can take them into the beach, save the kayak'ers arms from the extra paddling, but your rodeo so you make the call bro I am just there to help and be a part of it.

If it's rough and you put too many bags it is a bit more difficult.

If it's windy you can have a hard time maneuvering.

Tandem might be easier so you don't have sacks of urchin poking you.
