Odiorne Point - Monday, July 9

Recommended Posts

Monday, July 9 - Odiorne Point to Rye Harbor, back to Odiorne
Sue Morin, Dave Merriman, and Jeff Charette
Conditions - Air temps mid 80s, light breeze WSW 5 - 10 becoming S 5 - 10 afternoon,
1 foot swell with a light chop in the morning, swell increasing to around 2 feet with light chop afternoon.

Dave, with his new to him, Romany Classic, Sue, and I met at Odiorne Point around 9:15am. After sorting out boats and gear we were ready and on the water on schedule for our 10:00 launch.

I think Sue caught the kayaking bug.

We paddled out through Little Harbor and out the breakwater, on an outgoing tide, where we were met with a mild 1 foot swell and gentle chop. Paddling along the NH coast we all enjoyed the mild conditions, and the scenery.

Sue appears to be enjoying the mild conditions.

We stopped at Rye Harbor for a light lunch, then it was back on the water for the return to Odiorne. After lunch the swell picked up to around 2 feet, again with just a mild chop. With the breeze to our back and a gentle swell the return trip was quick and pleasant, everyone enjoying the conditions. 

We arrived back at Oriorne shortly after low tide, to a muddy landing, which I’m sure most local paddlers are all too familiar with. Overall a very pleasant day. Thanks to Dave and Sue for joining me and helping to make this a fun day.
