Departing the town dock promptly at 9:00am so we can cross the sound when motorboat traffic is typically less than later in the day. You must have the equipment (ie. no sit-on-tops or short kayaks), and the ability to do a sustained paddle across the Sound. We'll do a circumnavigation of City Island and probably stop at the Touring Kayak Club beach to stretch our legs and grab some nutrition (bring lunch). It is important that we paddle within close proximity to each other to maximize our visibility when crossing the Sound. This will be about 12 miles in all. PFDs required and a skirt a must. *Rated 3-4C*
High Tide: 7:30 am
Proper personal safety gear is required, a spray skirt required as conditions will merit. Bring the apropriate solar screening, water, and snack / lunch. Remember, event time is launch time. Give yourself enought time to gear up!
