9:45 am – Arrive (approx.)
10:15 am – On the Water Launch
Unload boat at ramp. Park in lot at top of hill.
We will be on the water promptly at 10:15am.
Cantler’s Riverside Inn
458 Forest Beach Rd, Annapolis, MD
May be warm enough to sit on their outdoor waterfront deck.
Launch from Truxton Park. Paddle north on Spa Creek, past City Dock, and into Severn. Pick safest transit to Severn’s upper side, easterly around Greenbury Point into Whitehall Bay, then left into Mill Creek to Cantler’s (about 5.3 miles). After lunch, optional extension into headwaters of Mill Creek, then return for total of 10.5 to 13 miles.
COLD WATER ATTIRE:
Though air temps are expected to be in the 60s, water temps may still be in the upper 30s, so cold water attire is required. If you don't know what that means you can learn more at http://www.meetup.com/Chesapeake-Kayak-Adventures/messages/boards/thread/38728872 You will not be allowed to participate in this paddle without the appropriate cold water attire.
FYI, the mouth of the Severn is open water and we typically encounter chop.
