Cape Porpoise Paddle

Launch from the Causeway on Pier Rd. in Cape Porpoise (Kennebunkport). Paddle through Turbitt's Creek and into the ocean to the backside of Goat Island. Land on Goat Island and tour the lighthouse. Then explore other islands and swim before heading back. This is a 3-hour paddle with launch time at 9 AM and takeout at 12:00 PM. Lunch out at The Pier or The Ramp at the conclusion of the paddle. If parking becomes an issue, parking will be available at the Lifesaving Resources' office and we'll shuttle people to and from the launch site.

    Sorry, it turns out I won't be able to attend. I am training for a road race and didn't get my long run in this AM and need to run Saturday AM. Sorry to miss seeing and meeting you all.

    For anyone interested in spending more time, the Kennebunkport Rotary Club is having their annual duck race that afternoon at 1 PM on the Kennebunk River. They are looking for some kayakers to help with this event. So, if you are available and interested, please call me (207/[masked]) or e-mail me ([masked]).

    As of now, we are at about 12 people (and growing), so with good weather, this should be an excellent paddle. Parking may be a problem, so I encourage you to get there early to unload your boat and secure a parking spot, alongside curb off the road, or at the pier (at the end of the road). If parking is an issue, you can park in our parking lot (adjacent to Cape Porpoise Kitchen) and I will shuttle you back and forth from my office to the launch site. Looking forward to paddling with everyone next Saturday.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
