Wed Lunch Paddle 9/21/2022: Rockport Granite Pier

Recommended Posts

Let's WLP (it's now a verb)! This Wednesday on Sept. 21 let's launch from Rockport Granite Pier (Google maps link: https://goo.gl/maps/wcKibL4ABWToCR2U9).  Please bring $12 in cash although parking may in fact be free — I don't remember if it's officially seasonal there. I will try and find out.

Let's meet up no later than 9:30 am and depart at 10:00 am.

Weather is supposed to be partly cloudy, high of 68ºF, NNW wind 5 to 8 kt dropping at midday becoming S in the afternoon. (The wind direction change is one reason for the choice of venue.) Seas 3-4 ft, so there may be some substantial swell.  LT is at 2:46pm.

You can get tide/current information, charts and weather forecasts for the area here: 


To join the trip you must be a paid-up NSPN member, and have signed the club participant waiver for this season. Your signup information will only be shared with other members on the trip.

Covid-19 paddling: this trip requires paddlers to be vaccinated/boosted against Covid-19 and symptom-free, as rescues or first aid may require close physical contact.

Trip level: WLPs do not have a specific level. All properly equipped members are welcome: please bring boats with rigged deck lines, bulkheads, spray skirts, and dress for immersion. For this trip a helmet is recommended also.

NOTE: The Wednesday Lunch Paddles are cooperative adventures, not guided trips. We encourage paddlers to make their own independent decision about their comfort level with conditions at the time of the paddle. 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. 

Please PM me if you have questions or if you haven’t paddled with me before.

Hope to see you there!
