2-3 hour paddle 8-12 miles

I would like to do a good paced paddle tomorrow morning. Open to suggestions for location to meet, for example Back Creek park and paddle around Goodwyn Island east of Yorktown, in the Chesapeake bay and York river. Low tide is 5am at USCG station in Yorktown and high tide 11 am, should be nice. Air temp 56 to 65, water around 60, so some kind of protection for immersion such as wetsuit recommended.

If no interest, I will probably launch at the Chickahominy River park and paddle Gordon Creek or out to the James river or up the Chickahominy. Tide is low at 9am at Scotland (Ferry, James river).

This is intended to be a "paddle paddle" of about 4 mph for more experienced paddlers.

Post your questions of you have any.

    We had a nice paddle around the southern end of Goodwin Island past Tue Marshes Light and across the mouth of the York River to the southernmost tip of Gloucester. After a short break we returned around the northern end of Goodwin Island. Beautiful weather with enough wind and waves to occasionally catch a short ride.
