Count me in for Sat.  Sunday looks a bit too cold for my bones.

Ho man, it's gonna be windy on Sunday.  Definitely the right venue for a 35 kt NW.

In case anyone else from Southern RI wants to join the paddle tomorrow but doesn't want to drive to Sakonnet, you can join Cam, Rich, and me. We're launching from Third Beach in Newport at 10:00 and will rendezvous with the Sakonnet group on the water.

Sorry for the final cancellation on site today, but sometimes you just have to see it and paddle another day.

Hi Tim,
As you know, Rich, Cam, and I had the same problem when we arrived to launch from Third Beach.It was BLOWING! So we decided to change the venue to upper Narrow River. When we got there, Rich realized that he had forgotten to pack his drysuit - so, as it turns out, we couldn't have launched from Third Beach even if we had dared! It all worked out for us - Rich was close enough to home at that point to get his drysuit and we all had a wonderful paddle up the River.

Stay warm tomorrow!

Hi Tim,

We had the NSPN Cold Water Clinic yesterday. Conditions forced moving to Lake Attitash in Amesbury, MA. This was organizer Suz H's call, and sounds like a good thing from what you saw in RI. Had the extra bonus of having really cold water (shallow fresh water lake) for the clinic!
