Launch at Latta Park. It is a good place to paddle and you should meet other paddlers there.

I did not realize you could kayak there... in the middle of Charlotte people get together to kayak? How long is the channel?


  How Far Away?

How far out are you wanting to paddle, and in what type of waterways? I'm from Greensboro, but currently in Chesapeake, Va and paddle the Outer Banks areas sometimes. Also doing a river trip on the New River in West Virginia on May 25-May26, about 5 hrs from Charlotte I think, whitewater and wilderness.

I just got my own Kayak (P&H Scorpio) a few monthes back. I am still used to paddling the cheap SOTs at rental places. I am practicing my screw roll in the flat water of Tuckertown Reservoir (Albermarle, NC).

But to answer your question. I like to kayak and find new areas so travelling a few miles to find something wouldn't bother me. Right now I would like to stick with C1 and C2 or bays. Open Ocean I know I am not ready for.

The New River is beautiful.. I went camping and tubing along it. I walked the river, throwing my line in and caught several fish. Caught some large mouth, bluegill and something!!

Sure... playing on C1 and C2 would be fun. I can only go on the weekends because job and kids. But keep me in mind if you have any get togethers over the weekend.

I have never been to a paddling race but seems like it would be fun.
