Let's meet in Coronado Tidelands Park at 7:00 to be on the water by 7:30 sunset is at 7:46, we'll paddle across San Diego Bay to the City side where the Summer Pops should be in full swing with their "Broadway Tonight" show to serenade us along as we paddle to and through Tuna Harbor. Then we'll go over to and around the USS Midway museum which dwarfs us. We'll paddle on to the Maritime Museum past the Star of India and other historic ships and boats. At that point we'll be about half way and can start heading back following the same route with a few changes. To total about 6 miles + or -
A lot of this paddle will take place in the dark, Everyone Must Have a Light which is lit from when we need it until the end of the paddle.
Crossing the Bay at night has risks like being hit by boats that don't see us or being swamped by wake that "sneaks" up on us. Everyone needs to try to stick together especially when crossing, Faster paddlers need to slow down, and slower paddlers must try to keep up.
The route should look a little like this.
