Paddle Punta Gorda
- Date: 11/09/2019 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Harbor conservation is the theme of this year’s Paddle Punta Gorda kayaking event. Participants will be guided by a local naturalist on one of seven area waterways. The Nov. 9 event is sponsored by TEAM Punta Gorda and its Maritime Committee. Registration for $25 per paddler can be made at TEAM’s website teampuntagorda.org. Proceeds will help develop and maintain kayak launches. Waterways will be assigned on the basis of registration order. No event-day registrations will be accepted. Participation is limited to 20 kayakers 18 and older per waterway, for a maximum of 140. The event will begin at 9 a.m. and take from 2 to 2.5 hours to complete. An after-party will be held at the Laishley Park Marine Community Room and will include lunch, free beer, a raffle and, for the first 100 registrants, a “Paddle Punta Gorda” tee shirt. PFDs are required. Bring your own kayak or rent one from the Navigator restaurant on the Peace River or at Ponce de Leon Park.
