Hi All, 
Just confirming the details of this weekend. We'l be meeting at the boatshed at 7am Saturday morning.
I cannot stress enough how cold this weekend will be. I think the max for the day will be 13 degrees or something ridiculous. We will be wet all day. Make sure your wetty is good, and make sure you have (multiple?) layers of thermals on underneath. Bring you change of clothes and make sure they are damm warm. 
The cold is completely manageable as long as we plan for it, and keep an eye on how we are feeling. On the upside, once you have gotten through Saturday pretty much ALL kayaking you do will be warmer and nicer! 
Bring HEAPS of Snacks and chocolate and a SOLID lunch. You will need these things in order to stay warm all day.
There will be at least one car load of people heading back Saturday night (probably everyone will be). Slight chance of shenannigans on Sunday, so if you are keen for these bring a tent, sleeping bag and stacks of warm clothes (it may even snow in the region....)
Catch you all Saturday Morning,
