This event will be hosted by Robin. Please contact him with any questions.
This time of year is perfect for paddling - the water is still warm, the air is refreshing, and the powerboat traffic has pretty much died down.
This is a very beginner-friendly paddle - this Saturday's weather looks breezy but warm and SUNNY so let's paddle Forge Pond (Brick) and up the Metedeconk for a spell. High tide is at 11:40am, so we will meet at 10:00am for a 10:30 launch. This paddle is extremely quiet, with twists and turns, great for birding, too.
Directions Rt. 70 westbound @ Rt. 88 (location of the Jersey Paddler), just west of the traffic
light. Stay in extreme right line, keeping to the right into the "breakdown" lane. At the bottom of the "hill," there is a turnoff onto a dirt/gravel lane that leads to the water.
Parking at the end where the launch is.

Note - there will not be a rental facility for the kayaks so if you'd like to participate you will need to bring your own kayak or secure one to bring to the launch.
