Short notice paddle from Back Creek Park to the Goodwin Islands

Meet at 12pm and paddle out around the Goodwin Islands. This is about 7 or 8 miles with some of it in open water. Wind conditions should be light. The water temps are still in the low 40's, dress accordingly. PFD required. This paddle is suitable for all paddlers who can paddle the distance.

    I'm sort of kicking myself now for missing out on this paddle. The sunny day featured what I would have guessed was almost a placid water surface. I could almost see and feel it! The last time our Tuesday Group tried to go out there it was a windy day, several months ago and we turned around at the mouth of Back Creek and instead explored the upstream nooks and crannies.

    Had a nice paddle thru the islands, out around Tue Marsh Light returning along the South Eastern side of the islands. Around 8 miles.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
