SK3 Trip, single leg distance not likely more than ca. 12 miles, please be comfortable with paddling faster than 3 kts.
CHANGE OF DATE due to weather....
LAUNCH - We will be launching from Little Bar in Goodland - floating kayak dock, good parking, and good food when we get back!
LAUNCH TIME - We have a high tide at Cape Romano at around 1:40PM, so there's no point in hurrying out there early to fight the current - please plan on a meeting time of about noon with launch in no great hurry after. If anyone wants to join me for lunch at Little Bar before heading out, they open at 11:30AM.
RETURN SCHEDULE - Low tide at Cape Romano on Friday will be about 9:20AM, so we'll plan to launch sometime between then and 11AM to use the incoming tide on the way back.
MONDAY UPDATE - The front is passing as I type this, leaving falling temperatures and wind out of the north. To keep our trip out sheltered and our campsite on the windward side, I've selected Carr Island at the mouth of the Morgan River as our destination. Location is 25°51'14.78"N 81°41'13.25"W - any questions, please ask!
If you can't make it for all three nights please let me know and we can go over plans in detail so you can find us... :-)
Planning includes making sure we're not fighting the tide and that we have a nice place to stay for a few nights. Planned activities include day trips, fishing and flying kites - let me know if anything else sounds fun!
