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.
