We will be doing a Level 1 Ocean Introduction trip this Saturday in Portsmouth. The plan is to launch from Odiorne to paddle under Wentworth bridge at the very beginning of the ebb. We will take a discussion break and then ride the ebb to Frost Point beach (just inside the breakwall) where we will get out and observe / discuss ocean conditions. There we will take opportunities to journey outside the wall for a bit, or stay in the harbor and work on paddling skills, before heading back to the boat ramp.
Trip is expected to be around 3 miles. We need to be ready to launch at 9:30am, and return around 1:00pm. Temps in the mid-60's with showers possible, so dress on the warmer side and bring snacks and a warm beverage if possible. We won't be stopping for lunch, so make sure your snacks are portable (eat in the boat) and plentiful enough.
Parking costs around $5, and you should reserve a space ahead of time by clicking this link.
