The beach/launch site is along Western avenue, halfway between Tavern on the Harbor (30 western Ave) and the Fishermans Statue, so it is west of the Tavern. Come directly to the launch to unload, and then we can sort out parking (there are a few spots right at the beach, and we can also park along the road).

Bold point I n east providence is also an easy put in for access to that area.  Kind of kitty corner across the harbor.

When we were talking on the Paddle, I mentioned a Put-in near Providence. I couldn't remember the name:

It is Collier Point Park:

Hi Brenda,
    I'm planning on making the SUNDAY paddle from Pavillion Beach. Is the parking lot for the launch just east of the "Tavern on the Harbor"? I can see a parking lot there right on the beach in Google Maps. A GPS address of "30 Commercial St" should get you to this lot. Is this the right spot for the launch?

Morning paddlers,

Kayak Waveology has a few fun and exciting courses running in RI this weekend.  Since it is kind of a neapish tide weekend and the local waters are warm, it's a great time to get acquainted with your boat and out of boat experiences, and how to sort things out.

Sat.  Surf / Coastal Incident Management.
https://www.kayakwaveology.com/event/surf-coastal-incident-management/


Sun.  Performance Surfing Skills 
https://www.kayakwaveology.com/event/performance-surfing-level-2-long-boats-ri/

Registrations can be done via the web links.  Or call or email to slot you in.
Should be a fun weekend of training.  Exerciser your BC Stars.


Best

If you are planning to come paddle out of Rockport MA on Saturday, please bring $5 for the Thatcher Island landing fee (since we will probably stop there). This fee is waived for all who can show proof they are Rockport residents, paid up Thacher Island Association members, holders of National Park Service America the Beautiful passes, or a valid Federal Duck Stamp. Thanks, Brenda

Hello,

I'm relatively new to kayaking.  I have a nice sea kayak I purchased last year.  I store it in the garage, and have to mount it on the car anytime I want to use it.  I'd get more use out of it if I could store it close to the shore, especially if it was along my commute (anywhere in providence or east providence would probably do).  Are there places that let you do that?  Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks!
John

I'm interested. Where are all the folks that were clambering for level 2 trips?
