Recommended Posts

Looking for others for a moderate/mellow early season paddle this Wed. Very flexible. Harbor Islands, Lane's, Boston Harbor? Here is an old float plan updated for this date. Weather report right now is good. Location may vary to keep it mellow and for convenience of all.
Tour the Harbor Islands from Wintrop with hopes of visiting Boston Light. Level 3 because of a possible combination of distance, tides, boat traffic and possible wind and waves, and current in Hull Gut (this has never been a problem along the Hull Shore).

Date: Wed 6/19
Launch: 11 AM, Winthrop End of Road, Airport Side (Beach Briefing 10:45 AM)

Routes: Tour of islands: 10-12 miles http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3013230

Trip Type and Tone: CAM. All stay together. Support each other. Conservative decisions. Should be comfortable with wind and waves.


Bring: Water & lunch

Tides: High Tide: Around 7:53 AM, Low Tide: Around 2:00 PM

I am interested in a Boston harbor paddle Wednesday

Coming from Quincy.

Depending on where you are coming from Would launch from city point or malibu beach be OK.?less exposure if winds ramp up

Tablo,

I will be at the Solstice, see you there for sure.

Thursday looks like a great day. It may work for me but I would rather not go too far due to other arm commitments:) 8-10?

Low tide is around 3 PM in the harbor. Winthrop might be better for a late morning launch, but I know you prefer City Island. What might work for you?

A short one out of winthrop sounds OK. prefer later morning start say 10, so I can avoid the rush hour traffic through Boston.

Perhaps winthrop to Georges and back is a good distance.

Regards

1. Sounds perfect. 10 is fine with me. Is later even better for you? 10:30? Either is fine.
