Smith Landing/Poquoson River


The weather’s great, let’s paddle.

Even though the air temperature should be unseasonable warm, the water will be a chilly 42 degrees. Please dress appropriately to include neoprene or a dry suit.

Like all meet ups, a life jacket (PFD) must be worn, and since we'll be out well past sunset you’ll need to bring a light so you can be seen by other boaters.

Sunset 5:27pm, moonrise 8:15pm / 95% full, tide is low at 4:35pm, water temp about 42 degrees.

I'll check the weather about 3:00 the day of the meet up and post any changes.

    Same question as Fred. If I had cold weather clothing I'd love to borrow a kayak and be there. Just so happens I can leave work early today. But have place to be in Poquoson at 7. Maybe hit Dicks at lunch to take care of my gear issue. Still need to try different kayaks to figure out what suits me best.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
