Dear Washington Kayak Club members:
Vashon would like to invite you to join us on August 17th, 2014, as we set a new world’s record for the number of canoes and kayaks rafted up in one place! The place will be the lovely confines of inner Quartermaster Harbor, just off Jensen Point. We’re aiming for 2,500 boats – yep 2,500 – and we need your help to get there! The event is a “design your own adventure” kind of day, allowing those with great interest in paddling to make a day of it on the waters in and around Quartermaster, while those who are just trying out paddling can push off from Jensen Point, paddle around a bit and join a record setting raft up just off the point.
The festivities begin on Saturday, August 16th with a music festival and a rare opportunity to camp on Vashon at the Open Space and school district properties. This event raises critically needed funds for Vashon Youth & Family Services, the Island’s largest human service agency. Learn more and register at www.vyfs.org/raftup.
