From the serene and gorgeous Beverly-Triton Beach, we'll head south with the tide, crossing the West River and paddling along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. On our return trip (after the tide turns), we will circle the famous Thomas Point Lighthouse.
The late start is to take advantage of the tides (at Thomas Point, high at 7 am and low at 2pm).
This will be roughly 12 miles, depending on the group. Weather looks wonderful: sunny, high of 79, wind East-North East at 6 mph. But things may change, so be prepared for possible choppy waves.
There are several places where we can pull ashore for breaks, including the undeveloped Jack Creek Park (which has a nice sandy beach, but no facilities).
This is not a beginner paddle. You must wear a spray skirt and know how to do a wet exit. Most paddlers need at least a 14-foot kayak to handle these waters. Bring lunch and water. There's no need to RSVP "no" unless you're changing from yes.
