Thachers, Salvages, etc. 6/2/09

Launch from Rockport's Granite Pier or Back Beach to paddle to the offshore Sandy Bay Breakwater, wet and dry Salvages and Thachers Island.

Meet at 10:00, launch at 10:30. Bring a $1 or two if you want to climb the lighthouse at Thachers.

Long day, but as much hanging around as paddling.

Be comfortable in rough water and breaking waves.

If you launch from Granite Pier, best to car pool, as the town charges to launch from the ramp.

Back Beach has all day metered parking. But best to carpool, as the spaces sometimes get taken by early morning scuba divers.

Winds over 18 knots cancel.

The trip is a definite -- we'll launch by preference from the beach, as it's cheaper. If no spaces then over to Granite Pier.

Otherwise paddlers can reconnoitre with us via vhf 72 at 10:30 a.m. I'll be on callsign "Adam."

By the way, give me a call if you want to carpool. Only issue is I need to leave Cape Ann by 6:30, but on the other hand not much earlier either...because after all, once you're on Cape Ann why rush to leave?

I am in for this--only problem is if the winds and waves are mixin' my hatches on the Night Heron might leak--so can't give a definite until tomorrow morn--les
