I'm a likely participant -- sounds like the perfect mellow paddle to finally start my season (with obeisance to the Goddesses and Gods of the Sea -- may they not zing us for my presumptive chutzpah).

Thanks for posting this, Al! Am thinking about joining you. What time do you anticipate getting off the water in the PM?

Well let's say we average 3 mph and do 9 miles. That is 3 hours. Plus a lunch stop and maybe another short one. No promises but 4-4.5 hours? We will NOT turn this into a long trip.

Hope you can join us.
