6/12/2019 - Wednesday Lunch Paddle @ Nahant Bay


Recommended Posts

Friends, Romans, Paddlers,

NSPN Wednesday Lunch Paddle #7 takes place on June 12, 2019.

This week's installment launches from Puritan Road in Swampscott. 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. Please respond to thread if attending, and I will PM the address (it is a house). Depending on number of participants we may run a short shuttle to Kings Beach.

Current forecast looks like WNW wind around 6 kt becoming SSW in the afternoon. Sunny. Seas around 1 ft. HT 7:45am LT 1:53pm. Magicseaweed is showing at most 2 foot seven second primaries from the SE. We will assess the beach to determine if surfing is viable. Lunch will be around East Point in Nahant. Visits to Saunders Ledge, East Point Rocks, and Egg Rock are possible.

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.

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 have any questions, or if you haven’t paddled with Bob Levine or myself before, please get in touch with @rylevine or @Joseph Berkovitz by private message before the event so we can touch base!

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!
