NE Casco Bay Orrs Island -Ragged Island June 8, 2019

NSPN Calendar

Event details

amble and explore the area of ledges and small islands in the part of  NE Casco Bay  between the Orrs/Bailey Island Peninsula and the  Cape Small Headland. 
Launch from H20/ Orrs Island  at  9:30   and hop from island to island , ledge to ledge with Ragged Island the anchor of the trip, probably a counter  clockwise tour with a return along the northern coastline. High Tide is 4PM , so there will be a rising tde for much of the trip.  The trip will involve a series of mini- crossings from 1/2 nm to  1 nm , and the  ideal sea state for this trip would be on the mild side: if seas are  greater than  2-3 feet and winds greater than 10 kt ,  the  route the can seek the more protected waters of Quahog Bay and the inlets and ledges to the north hugging Sebascodegan Island. Trip will be canceled if there is a small craft advisory. 

Estimated mileage for the trip @ 10 NM
 Drysuits are required to highly recommended, as the water temps (still not over 50 degrees )  seem to be  a bit on the cold side for this time of year.  

If you are interested in joining me, rsvp ("I'm going" ) on the calendar posting or PM me (PeterB)  and we can communicate  by PM in advance of the trip .
