Fort Wetherill Sunday 6/16
« on: June 13, 2013, 06:55:12 AM »

Planning a Level 3/4, ITW at 10:00. Anticipate lingerings at rocks. Non rock fans welcome if you don't mind a paddle that may be much like walking an inquisitive dog. No plastic bags needed, helmets recommended.

Hey Bob,

I'm interested in this trip but I've never paddled there. About how many miles do you plan to paddle and where exactly is the launch?

Since the plan is to play around the rocks, there won't be a lot of mileage, probably less than 12 m.

Ft Wetherill State Park is at the south east end of the main part of Jamestown (not Beavertail). After you take the left fork onto Ft Wetherill Rd, you will turn right into the park entrance, and go IMMEDIATELY left. Stay left, and in a few hundred yards you will see a cove on the right and parking with kayaks and scuba people (popular scuba venue). My cell is 401 935 5592. Helmets for rock play are strongly advised.

There also are directions and a map on the "Mike K's Kayak Launches" link on the main page.

Hey Bob,

If I can get my lazy butt up early enough to make the drive out there, I might just join you too.

Bob,

12 miles is fine. I'll be in my Delphin so I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't be a really long distance. See you in the morning. I put your number in my phone. Mine is 508-292-1038.

I'll be there, assuming I recover from today's slog up the Slocum (first time on the water since October).
