Title: August 10 & 11
Post by: Tim on August 08, 2019, 07:07:41 AM
0900 Launch, Narragansett Bay Campus, Level 3 Trips both days

These trips will be touring trips inside the West Passage.  We are likely to head over to Dutch Island and move north under the bridge.  We may also visit the Rome Point area.  Final decisions will depend on afternoon sea breeze and the day's group.

See you this weekend!

Hi Tim,

I'm totally available on Sunday! Westport last weekend was definitely challenging and we learned a lot from Mike.

Hi, I'm new to RICKA.  I did the Weaver's Cove paddle a couple weeks ago (Emile, weren't you on that one?) and one FW trip last year.  Also some paddles with Boston AMC and NSPN including 38 miles in 2.5 days up in Maine a month ago.  I was planning to do the Brewster Rocks tomorrow with AMC Boston but with winds 15-25 out of the West and small craft advisories, I'm thinking of backing out of it (even if it goes out).  But I really want to paddle this weekend and the forecast Sunday looks better.

 I'm good for 15-16 miles day at a moderate pace with a break or two.  I'm fine in chop and (non-breaking) waves but only experienced in surf over is up to 1.5 feet or so.

So, can I sign up for Sunday?

We wanted to thank you so much for putting together the trip yesterday. Sarah and I as always learn a ton from you and had a great time. We also ordered Sarah the correct type and size of paddle per your assessment.

Thank you again and can't wait for the next trip.
