Wed. Lunch Paddle #15: 8/14/2019 @ Nahant Beach

Recommended Posts

NSPN Wednesday Lunch Paddle #15 takes place August 14, 2019.

We will meet at the Nahant Beach and Playground Beach House at 10:00am. The parking lot is on the right off the rotary at the intersection of Lynn Shore Drive and the Lynnway. It is at the base of the causeway that runs out from Lynn to Nahant (PM me for further directions). After meeting we will determine alternative parking and nearby put-ins if the lot is full or beach too rough.

HT 11:45am, 73F air,  NNE wind 8 to 11 kt. A slight chance of showers. Seas around 1 ft.  MSW at noon is showing 1-2 foot, 2.5 foot @ 5 sec primaries.

Let's meet at 10 am sharp, and ready to launch around 10.20 am. Then we'll have a beach briefing, make a plan together based on what people feel like doing, and get on the water, hopefully around 10.30 am. There are several options to paddle from this launch so we will plan as a group based on conditions and skill level.

This trip doesn't have a specific level: we'll determine the route based on who shows up, what people want to do, and what the environment wants to do. All properly equipped members are welcome: please bring rigged boats with deck lines, bulkheads, spray skirts, and dress for immersion.

NOTE: The Wednesday Lunch Paddles are cooperative adventures, not guided trips. Each participant is responsible for her/his own safety.Don’t assume the trip initiators are smarter, stronger, better at rough water, more attractive, or more skilled paddlers than you are. For more information, see this description of our trip philosophy from the NSPN web site.  A waiver/float plan will be created at the launch, so there's no need to commit in advance. It's always 100% OK to show up, decide you don't like the conditions or the trip, and opt out.

If you're interested in coming, it's nice if you let us know by posting on this thread. There is no calendar entry for this particular trip. Other conversation (including stating your interest in going) can also happen on this thread.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

I am going to try to make it. Kind of in the same state as Al. Best I can say is if you see me, I'll be there, if you don't I didn't make it.
