Solstice Level 4 (advanced) Trip Saturday June 20 - Cancelled

Recommended Posts

This is our annual summertime social event which is always held at Riverhead Beach in Marblehead and finishes off with a pot luck party under the pavilion across the street at Devereux Beach (be prepared that it is almost always very windy and a bit chilly in the afternoon).  Parking at Riverhead should be free, but can be busy with dog walker, SUP rentals, and - oh yeah, a bunch of kayakers!  There is alternate parking at Devereaux, but be prepared to pay $15 for the day. 

Traditionally, we end up with multiple groups on the water doing different trips based on skills and experience.  Please review our Trip Levels as a guide line to which group you want to be in.  They are guidelines, not hard limits, so if you are unsure, just ask here.  This group would be the most advanced, looking to paddle long distances, more challenging conditions, or both.  Participants in this group should be self-sufficient with their equipment and general paddling skills, although established Level 3 paddlers may find this a good opportunity to challenge themselves.

The discussion in this thread should include what time everyone should be completely ready to launch so that a group discussion (aka "beach briefing") can begin - maybe around 10:00am?.  We prefer to have everyone back around 3:00pm so that we can all share in the pot luck meal, so plan the day accordingly.

Please use this thread to indicate your desire to paddle with this pod, and discuss any logistics necessary.

I had a great time last year and certainly would like to do it this year too

I look forward to a great day.

10:00 am launch BinB sounds good. 

Though I will be there a little earlier to have some confidence in parking.

With good conditions we could do  Little Misery via the Gooseberrys and back along the shore or Baker.

I don’t think it makes sense due to the 10-person gathering limit and not being able to do the Pot Luck afterwards. A final decision will be announced Wednesday.

Hi Rob - what’s happening with the solstice paddles?  I have been looking for an announcement one way or the other but have not seen one. Maybe I missed something but no one else I have talked to seems to know either.
