Re: Cuttyhunk from Gooseberry Neck August 6th

I'm interested in this trip, although tempted to join Josko from or to Woods Hole. I've been paddling many, many years and have paddled open water, am comfortable in swells. Breaking waves are not my favorite, especially at the beam, but most people don't plan for these conditions (right Josko?). I'...

I'm bringing my small dutch oven for fresh-baked bread or dessert. Each participant will be assigned to ...

Re: Labor day weekend in Casco bay : CANCELLED

50% chance of T-showers this Sunday and Monday has led us to cancel this trip. Bummer - our last holiday weekend (July 4th) was also scuttled by a hurricane. Dana Gray and I are planning to paddle Casco on Saturday as a day trip (~16 miles total). Contact me at JBarrell@yahoo.com if interested.
