Recommended Posts

Marblehead, Bakers, Misery

Date: Saturday 8/22

Launch: Riverhead, 9:30 AM (Beach Briefing 9:15 AM) to take advantage of the tides and hopefullly beat any thunderstorms.

Status: Need a minimum of 2 other committed paddlers to confirm. Confirmation will be posted on this thread.

Route: 12 miles: http://www.mappedometer.com/?maproute=454182 Depending on conditions, circumnavigate Bakers with stop on Misery ($5 for The Trustees unless you are a member) for lunch and walk. Misery Island is my single favorite lunch stop when kayaking in this area. Beautiful place, beautiful views, great history.

Put-in: Riverhead boat ramp (on the left). This is a state access ramp so there is NO parking charge. Bathroom facilities and a busy beach across the street.

Trip Type and Tone: Level 3. CAM. All stay together. Support each other. Conservative decisions. Should be comfortable with wind and waves.

Bring: Water & lunch, snacks, extra clothing, etc.

Tides are perfect: Low Tide: Around 11:05 PM
