Welcome to the Olympic Kayak Club…the place for all paddlers. We are a salty band of paddling misfits from all walks of life. Our members are young and old, from beginners to seasoned veterans and everywhere in between. We are a diverse group with one common interest…The love of paddling and the outdoors we do it in! Our club consists of members from throughout the Puget Sound and the Kitsap Peninsula area. We are preparing for an exciting year in 2015. The Club sponsored the Puget Sound Challenge (PSC) from 2009-2012, paddling approximately 150 NM each year. We ceased this intensive effort and now stay focused on Puget Sound trips and overnight paddles. OKC paddle plans this year include overnight paddles to Lopez & Orcas Island in the San Juans. We will use the north launch from Orcas to explore Sucia Island and camp overnight. The trip would allow us to explore both Matias and Patos Islands. Additional overnight paddles will include Blake and Hope Islands. We plan to paddle Ozette Lake on the Olympic Peninsula and will have our 2nd annual paddle progressive dinner in June to four locations in and around the Bremerton area. We are planning a Hood Canal Challenge that will take us from Belfair SP along the southern and western edges of Hood Canal along the shoreline bordering Highways 104 & 101 over several months using shuttles to progressively make our way to Port Gamble on the Kitsap Peninsula. There are a lot of nice communities and State Parks for us to paddle on one or two day paddles throughout April to October. All of the Club meetings and paddles are posted to the OKC calendar... so come join the Olympic Kayak Club paddlers for an interesting series of planned paddles in 2015!!
