6-13 Launch Preparations
The Totem Square lawn worked out as an ideal place for our intial setup and group shot.
The dock's surface was quite a bit higher than expected. Fortunately this ramp provided better means for getting everyone in the water.
Now that everyone is in the water its time to gather up and head out.
