Full Moon Paddle - June

The first of three of these popular paddles planned for 2016! We will meet up at the Raymond Beach boat launch in Raymond and take a loop around the north end of Jordan Bay of Sebago Lake. Remember to bring lights: glow sticks, flashlights, headlamps, etc! Moonrise should happen at 7:34, Sunset is 8:26, so the moon will rise just before it gets dark. We will enjoy a nice evening paddle and finish up just as darkness settles in. Being a Sunday night, we won't plan to be out too late. Meet up at 6:30 and be underway by 7:00. We should be back at Raymond beach no later than 9:00. You're certainly welcome to be out longer if you wish!
Trip cancellations will be e-mailed and posting removed at least two hours before trip start time.
For renting a kayak contact Sebago Trails Paddling directly at [masked] or [masked]. Special rate for this group are $20.00 includes boat, paddle, PFD and delivery to the launch site. ***PLEASE NOTE*** Any member of this meetup may organize a paddle meetup using this page. The organizers in this group are NOT trained leaders or instructors. The organizers only set the time and place; each person participating in any group trip is responsible for their own safety. Each participant is responsible for evaluating all relevant conditions for the trip and determining if their skills and equipment are appropriate for those conditions. Each participant is responsible for following Maine laws and regulations and conducting himself/herself in a safe manner.
Maine law requires that an approved PFD must be in your boat for each person in the boat; and when paddling between sunset and sunrise, a lantern, headlamp or flashlight showing a white light must “be at the ready” and be exhibited in time to prevent a collision.
Paddlers should always be aware of ever-changing weather conditions and make appropriate decisions regarding one's safety.
We advise that each person participating in an event bring a spare set of clothes in a waterproof bag, as well as water, snack, sunscreen and insect repellent. A hat or visor and sunglasses are advisable for early evening paddles when the sun is low in the sky.

    I am from NH, what is the mosquito- a parking area? why can we not park elsewhere?

    June 18

    • Kim G.

      ice cream. Its down the road. Ice Cream is not required You can park at Raymond Beach where we launch or at Standish.. another 10 miles away or Sebago Lake State Park some 10 miles away. But its a Meetup so its nice to start sort of together.. then you could paddle to Sebago Lake SP and back as you want a longer paddle. The Dingley Islands are nice also. Its a bit of a paddle around Raymond Cape.

    Hoping (finally) to make it this time (2 of us, even!) but it will be dependent upon how the day unfolds (Father's Day celebration in afternoon, etc.). "Fingers crossed!"

    Is there a camp ground nearby? Would love to join you but I am about 90 minutes away. Camping sounds like a great way to extend the evening for those that don't have to work.

    • Bill A.

      It's right on Rt 302 in Raymond, .5 miles north (west) of the intersection of Rt 121 on the left. There is a map link in the above description. I don't have an exact address. The place is marked with a blue state boat launch sign. It's real hard to miss.
