We’ll be launching from Indian island County Park, at 8:00am.  Be sure to arrive early enough for this to happen on time! Or we’ll miss our opertunity to avoid paddling against the current for first 1.5nm.

I’m not certain about restrooms at this location but there are several near by.  Be sure to stop before reaching Launch location. (I’ve been there few months ago but cannot remember seeing rest room there).

Please dress appropriately ( dry Suit required)

Bring something warm to drink and a lunch
Bring if you have these:

FM Radio

I’m hoping there’ll be some wild life to keep us company for a change😀
