Boston to Portland Challenge

Recommended Posts

I talked with some paddlers on the recent Jewell trip about this idea I had to attempt to paddle from Boston to Portland in a proper sea kayak in 24 hours or less. Sunday/Monday looked like a decent weather window. My friend Vytas (also a member here) and I launched out of Deer Island at around 9PM Sunday. He peeled off just before sunrise and I continued solo until Cape Porpoise where my friend Dan joined until Wood Island. I hit a wall of wind and current after rounding Two Lights, so I slowly ferried to Cushing Island in order to reach some part of Portland in time, which was 23:55...cutting it very close! 

Total mileage was 93 nautical.
