Meeting at Penrose Point State Park for a targeted 0900 launch.   321 158th Avenue SW. Lakebay, WA 98349

Plan to be back at launch site by 1500, latest.   Bathroom available at launch site.  Lunch at Cutts Island.

There will 2 crossings involved in this trip, and each of 2 nm in length - so do please take note.  You should be comfortable remaining in boat for up to 5nm without stoppage.   The inlet can get quite windy and sloppy, especially with a southerly, but we will keep it mellow for this one.  Will avoid a headwind suffer fest.  If conditions are much outside the stated range, will likely cancel.  More explicit details will follow.
