Port Townsend: North Beach to McCurdy Point


Sea Kayak - Port Townsend: North Beach to McCurdy Point

This could be an interesting paddle depending on the weather? Should there be a Gale within 24 hours of launch time you could find challenging conditions at North Beach County Park. If you have a sail be sure to bring it along. In any Case it’s a dumping beach so if your comfortable with a little confused wave action at the beach; this will be kind of a conditioning paddle.
