Strandrydding Tur til Vengsøya

  • Rekvika 565 Vengsøya Troms, 9120 Norway (map)

TSI Trulle skal på tur til Vengsøya med ferga for å paddle ut til en strand som trenger vår oppmerksomhet!

We plan to paddle on Vengsøya May 5th-6th, 2018 to be involved in national beach cleanup day and have some fun. The goal is to accommodate as many people as possible so please join the Facebook event and follow this link to answer some questions https://goo.gl/forms/579XEuqCgSZl77W32

In brief the plan is to meet at the Trulle boatshed/naust, drive to Skulsfjord on Kvaløya and take the ferry to Vengsøya. We will then paddle around Vengsøya to a beach where we will clean up all the junk that has washed up there as part of the Norwegian national beach cleanup day. Then there will be time for grilling, fun and exploring. Then depending on interest we can either paddle back and take the ferry back on the saturday evening (departing around 6pm) or we can camp overnight at the beach on Vengsøya and take the ferry back on sunday. A group of people may also choose to paddle all the way back to Skulsfjord.

Note that as paddlers we are subject to the goodwill of the weather gods so it is possible that the plan will need to be changed or the trip may be cancelled in the event of bad weather.

Since we have the ferry option the paddling distances will not be too long so the trip will be suitable for novice paddlers, but it should not be your first time in a sea kayak. Again please remember to fill in the form so that we can organise the logistics
