Who are 27-80 Paddlers?
27-80 Paddlers is a club of paddlers that participate in organized weekly kayak trips in Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach Counties. Our members are mostly from Martin and St. Lucie Counties and enjoy overnight trips, monthly meetings, social events, biking, and hiking. The club functions as a cooperative group. All activities the club engages in are dependent upon contributions made by club members. In order to maintain the club's success members are expected to participate in organizing, planning and leading paddles and other club events. Members are also expected to have or at a minimum be determined to develop a competent skill level and be aware of and comply with all matters of safe kayaking. Our name? The 27-80 Paddlers club was named for the latitude and longitude coordinates nearest to our location on the east coast of Florida near Stuart -- exact location is about 5 miles offshore.
