Time: Meet before 9:30 AM. Launch before 10:00.

Launch location: [update] Launch from the intersection of Willowlake Crescent and Southbridge Drive on the east side of the Seine River. This is point #21 on the Paddling the Seine map.

Description: We will paddle a completely different section of the river than we paddled on May 29.
From the launch location, paddle upstream to no further than the Shorehill Bridge, have lunch, and then paddle downstream back to the launch location. Total distance is 15K if our turnaround location is the Shorehill Bridge. This is the south half of section 3 plus section 4 on the Paddling the Seine map. The Seine River within Winnipeg is fairly shallow and very popular, and there are dozens of potential locations to disembark if needed.
June 26 is National Canoe Day

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.

Toilets: There aren't any at the launch site, and we don't know of any along our route, but there is a No Frills strip mall located ~500 metres from our planned lunch location.

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.
