Due to weather forecast of thunder, heavy rains, and lighting--I pass.

If weather permits for tomorrow, I plan on making this event a day.

depending on weather, I might be interested in paddling out to see the ships come in, anyone else interested? I've never done this before, so would want to go with folks who know where to best see them from... BethS

Hi Beth,

The big question is the weather for tomorrow--but if it does look like a possibility, here's the grand plan:

launch from Sing's Beach--which is on Morrissey Blvd. in Dorchester--It is not named Sing's Beach --but it is called that name b/c there is no name for this launch site--

But it is the only place to park in that area without meters--if you park at Castle Island--meters and/or long haul to drag your boat--

The launch will probably be around 10:30 am butts in boat 10:30--

Then it is off to Spectacle Island--or there abouts depending on the best viewpoints.

I don't know your kayak experience, but given the boat traffic that day, even if the weather cooperates, this is not a level 1 or even a level 2 trip--

Directions to Sing's Beach:

Heading South from Boston--get on to Morrissey Blvd.--Go pass UMass, go pass Savin Hill Yacht Club--make sure you are in the left hand side of the road b/c you are going to take a U-turn at the light (the expressway is over you when you are at the light)--as if you are back tracking--Take the U-turn-- you will go over a lil' grated bridge for the causeway --as soon as you go over that bridge --take a right into the boat launch--my car will be parked so that you will see the boat on my roof--the car is a ice blue saab sports-combi--

If you or anyone else have any more questions, send me a note--and I will reply post haste.

Ms. Ferret,

Thanks for the directions. If we get acceptable weather and conditions I'm in.

I'd like to join also, given the above caveat. I'll keep an eye on this thread for a decision!

Hi Les and everyone; I will check in the the morning to see what the weather looks like, If its a nice day it sounds great. My cell is 781 526-6985, if you wish to call me for any reason. I am comfortable in surf/rough water, so unless the weather is horrible (in which case I won't go) I will be OK in the boat traffic, wind, waves, etc. Thanks, BethS
