No facilities at the first spot, which is really just a rocky landing; unknown at the second.  See description for Castle Hill Coast Guard station from Mike Krabak's web site:

http://www.kayakaccessri.info/mapserver/castle_hill_cg.htm

I assume you are still referring to the sites from the original question and not to Potter Cove which is in Jamestown.

One more question... are there "facilities" at Potter's Cove or anywhere in the CG cove?

There is a somewhat sheltered landing spot, good at mild conditions and with room for just a few kayaks, from which one can walk up the rocks to the lighthouse:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/41%C2%B027'46.8%22N+71%C2%B021'42.4%22W/@41.4628299,-71.3619438,430m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d41.4630049!4d-71.3617791

and a more sheltered spot inside Castle Hill cove, next to the Coast Guard station:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/41%C2%B027'44.3%22N+71%C2%B021'35.1%22W/@41.462312,-71.3604608,213m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d41.462312!4d-71.3597506

Both are obviously only accessible from the water, not launching sites.

Just wondering if there was a sheltered lunchspot over near Castle Hill Light? Up the Coast Guard cove maybe?

We are running a British Canoeing Sea kayak Leader Training (4 Star Sea) in September. 9/16-17, 2017.   It would be grand to have some local folks to help out this training, to get these aspirants closer to the assessment.  We call the me penguins since guinea pigs can not swim, but penguins can.

There are two aspirant spots open as well.

Looking for about four 3 Star + paddlers to help out.

Please contact me at

Tel: 860-304-4000

See you on the water
