Thursday After Work Paddle / Dinner Paddle

Location visible to members


We are combining this week's Wednesday After Work Paddle with a monthly 'meeting' Dinner Paddle.

We are planning to have dinner at the Good Table Restaurant in Cape Elizabeth immediately after the conclusion of our paddling.

Please take the time to print out, sign and bring SMSKN statement of understanding. It is available in our Files section or perhaps directly from these links:

The level of the paddle will be determined by the overall skill of the paddlers.

Option 1 - Paddle to Richmond Island, explore the island, paddle back

Option 2 - Paddle around Richmond Island (tide dependent and a possible level 3 on the outside of Richmond)

Option 3 - Paddle across the cove to Richmond Island beach. At the beach we can try addressing rescue skills or rolling. (or just chill out for a while before we paddle back). Kettle cove is usually protected to provide enjoyable experience for all levels. The Kettle Cove parking lot is right next to a pocket beach where we put in our boats. I might have some equipment available to loan for the night - let me know if you are missing something and I will try to bring it with me. Required equipment: Life Jacket, Sea Kayak, Spray Skirt and a paddle :-)

Recommended equipment: Kayak, Paddle, Sprayskirt, Paddle Float, Bilge Pump, Sunscreen, Beverage.
