Overview

Paddle and island camping in Casco bay, Maine for two nights, three days. You must have some experience packing your kayak, camping, and paddling in at least level 2+ (Moderate - Difficult) conditions). Multi-day trips carry more risks from changing weather, so you must be capable of paddling in 15kt winds and 2ft seas as well as camping in rain. We cannot share food, so you must prepare your own meals. To reduce risk of Covid spread: 1- Group size is limited to 5-6 persons total. 2- Participants cannot be from towns with infections >8 per 100k (Framingham, Westborough, Winthrop, Everett, Chelsea, Revere, Lynn, or Westhampton) 3- If you work in a public, high traffic area, we need to discuss. I don't want to penalize our essential workers, but this increases risk of spread within our group. Our group will be in close quarters for a long weekend, so there is an increased risk of spreading Covid. We cannot reserve a campsite, so it is difficult to know how large or small our campsite will be. You will need to be comfortable with this additional risk. In addition, Massachusetts (and Rhode Island) residents must drive directly to our launch without stops for food, bathrooms, or other public places (in Maine).
