Location / Time: We'll launch from along Wavey Creek Road at 10:00 AM. There are actually many places to launch along that road. Please plan to arrive at 9:30. Kevin & Anita will arrive very early to help guide you to the exact launch location.
Kevin & Anita launched from Wavey Creek Road on 2020-May-30. Our GPS track is here. Launch to take-out was 3 hours / 13 km, which included lunch and a stop for a beachside bathroom break … and a talk with the cottage owner.
We also launched from Wavey Creek Road on 2021-May-10. Our GPS track is here. Launch to take-out was 4½ hours / 19 km, which included lunch at Netley Creek Provincial Park.
On September 28 we can paddle some combination or variation of those two routes, depending on what attendees want to do.
Wavey Creek, Medicine Creek, and Netley Creek are very wide "creeks" in most places -- much wider than the Seine River and even the La Salle River. Backflow from Lake Winnipeg and the Red River ensures good water depth and minimal current.
Toilets: There aren't any formal toilets in Netley Creek Provincial Park or along our paddling route.
Boats: If you don’t have a canoe or kayak, we can try to partner you with a canoe owner who is looking for a bow paddler.
Rating: Novice (bow paddler in the canoe of an experienced stern paddler) to intermediate.
Bring: Lunch, water, sunscreen, your name tag, and extra warm clothes ... just in case.
