This week's WLP (the first calendared one of the 2023 season!) is on Wednesday June 7 and will launch from Fishermans Beach in Swampscott (Google maps link: https://goo.gl/maps/R4H1vQGarFPnGGBh7).  Parking is free. The trip will be limited to 8 or so in order to avoid parking impact.

Let's meet up at 9:00 am with an aim to depart around 9:30 am. We will be off the water by 2 pm latest. The weather forecast is for partly sunny/overcast, showers possible, highs in 60s, calm seas, winds W at 10 knots.

You can get tide information, charts and weather forecasts for the area from this Floating Trails map. I have marked a couple of possible routes and lunch stops on this chart.

Tides for Lynn Harbor on Wednesday are as follows:

Time (EDT) Type Feet
01:57 am high 11.11
08:28 am low -0.98
09:00 am   -0.75
02:46 pm high 9.29
08:40 pm low 0.51

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.

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 and plans 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 on one of these events before.

Hope to see you there!
