I recall the idea for a Boston Harbor trip from Hull out to the Brewsters in one of the threads this last fall.  There can be current in the area so certainly doing it during favorable tides would make it easier.  To learn more about the current/tides, I did some queries on http://fishcurrents.com/map.html to see how they change from week to week.  I noticed that every two weeks the tides rotate close to twelve hours.  Therefore when there tends to be favorable tides, ebbing in the AM, flooding in the PM, the favorable conditions are almost the same time every other weekend for several occurrences.

The following weekends appear to have favorable tides to leave Hull in the AM and return in the PM --

May 30/31.
June 13/14.
June 27/28.
July 11/12.

I've only been paddling with the club for a year and don't have the experience to be a trip leader.  Also, I do not know how the trip planning process works other than the Show&Go trips.  But I thought I'd post this data in case anyone that is interested in a trip like this might want to plan something.  I did a paddle from Hull to the Brewsters last summer and it was a nice time.

Happy Winter All,

https://seasherpakayak.com is offering two events in Baja in early March.  Each is geared towards specific levels of experience so it should be easy to find a good fit.  Gerry ran an event there last year:  Conditions were spectacular (both weather and swell), our bungalow comfy with great views, fantastic food and quality tequila.  Lots of fun and world class paddling.  Event prices are surprisingly low as that's the way things are in Baja.

Baja sea kayaking offers fantastic rock gardening and surf venues set against spectacular scenary and wildlife. In this event, we’ll balance skills instruction with exploration and playtime.

Hi Folks,

Let's plan on two dates - Saturday, January 25 and February 22, 1:00-4:00 pm.  At the Kingston Free Library, 2605 Kingstown Road, Kingston, RI 02881. We'll use the upstairs meeting room.

Bring a base plate/orienteering compass, and any other navigation tools you might have.  A chart or two...
