Overview

An unbelievable paradise of sunsets and paddling. Wild-life and sea life abound, including clamming, guarding terrapin turtle eggs, and long or short course sea paddling. Bringing your own kayak, paddles, and PFDs is strongly recommended. All kayaks must have flotation: bulkheads or flotations bags. There are sit-atop tandem kayaks, paddles, and PFDs, but this will limit which paddling tours you can choose. 1-2 expert sea kayak instructor/leaders will be attending to help. Some paddling experience is required. Rain, wind, current and tidal strength may curtail the lengths of paddles, but will not cancel the trip. Be prepared for "wilderness" level of insect presence in some parts of island at dusk. Basic paddling experience expected. Must be able to lift and move kayaks to help set up seasonal storage. Trip is co-sponsored by AMC and Sebago paddling clubs. Very limited group size. This year, simple meals and menus will be decided in advance by both co-leaders, then participants contribute assigned items and help in cooking and cleaning. Preference given to registered adults (no teens or children) who meet criteria above. Registration does not guarantee participation. Instructions will follow. For questions, email co-leader, Mary Ann Hoag. maryannhoag@yahoo.com Texts preferred to phone calls.
