Saw this on the Connyak board, but somehow it does not appear to be on the RICKA board.

Bob, it's listed on the RICKA Seakayak homepage with the other paddles for July. My question is where is the town parking lot in Stonington? Is it the place at the end of the point? It'd be great if each paddle also gave directions to the put-ins. This would be especially helpful to newcomers.  :)

No, its at the main parking area, behind the main "drag" by the fishing boats.

By the way, the trip is a posted RICKA Sea Kayaking L-3 Trip.  See Calendar and Front Pages.
