Everybody does sunset paddles so let’s reverse this one and watch the sun come up for a change. If you are (or can be for this event) an early riser, join me for a morning paddle. Let’s meet at Little Island Park in Virginia Beach GPS coordinates[masked],[masked] address 3820 S. Sandpiper Rd, Virginia Beach at 6:30 am. We will launch by asap. Twilight should be around 6:45 am and sunrise will be at 7:14 am.
There are no lights at the launch site so please bring lighting to assist you with your launch. If you have any questions give me a call[masked]-1137.
We will paddle south towards Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge then circle around the island to the west turning north and heading back to Little Island Park. The trip should be around 6 -7 miles.
This paddle is open to all boats and SUP’s but please, know your limitations. I will check and post the predicted weather/winds on Friday evening. If you have a short boat, no spray skirt and limited experience then this may not be the paddle to start with if winds are up. As always, dress for the water temp not the air temp.
Parking for this paddle is on the ocean side of Sandbridge road. There is no charge for parking and we can assist each other with getting the boats from the parking area to the launch site.
Be sure to bring water and any snacks you may need.
As always I will be driving a silver Chevrolet P/U with kayak racks.
In case of rain or winds with gust predicted of over 20 mph this paddle will be canceled.
We can stop at one of the local establishments for breakfast after the paddle.
Please check back often in case of changes.
