Let’s meetup and paddle from Windsor Castle Park out to the James River.
We will meet at 10:00 AM and launch by 10:30
The round trip will be 10 to 12 miles. Air temp should climb into the high 40's and sunny but remember to dress for the water temp (mid 40's). PFD's are required.
Windsor Castle Park uses a roller ramp launch so it’s easy in and easy out. On past paddles we have seen Bald Eagles, Osprey, Heron and several species of waterfowl.
If you are coming off Rte. 10 (Church Rd) passing Smithfield Station on your right you will turn left onto Jericho Rd. It will be the 1st left after you cross the bridge. Take the next left which will lead you to the parking area.
GPS coordinates are 36.9758,-76.621171
There is no charge for the paddle and it is open to all skill levels but please remember the shorter boats travel slower than the touring/longer boats. Bring water and any snacks you may need.
Please check back often in case of changes.
