Hingham 6/11 or maybe change?

Postby norm » Mon Jun 08, 2020 3:11 pm

The weather forecast looks very windy again for this Thursday evening's paddle in Hingham. The forecast for Friday seems warmer and less windy. Do we want to change nights and/or change locations?

Let's discuss please.

Hi. Well being a non wind person (forecast is for 20 mph out of the South) I'd suggest Friday because I am not as knowledgeable about what other locations would work (though certainly open to what you'd suggest)

I think I will be done with varnishing by then and ready to scratch up the bottom again ;)

Soon,

If you don't have an alternate paddling location, perhaps we can do a few Skills nights back to back.

Open to go with the flow, I don't mind the wind but understand it can be a drag.

Happy to do another skills night, at a location that suits folks.
Paddle with a big smile, its contagious :D

After the Tuesday paddle, we had a discussion about the Thursday night weather forecast and the consensus decision was to go out Friday evening from Stephens Field in Plymouth. I guess we can still shoot to arrive at 4:30 and launch at 5:00.

Bea - I think we should just keep one thread unless there are people that are still going to go out Thursday night, then we should break out into 2 threads. I believe that multiple threads can get confusing if people are not following both closely.

I may swing by for at least part of the trip. I hope you guys are ok with my convertible kayak. I will have the top down. If not, I will go out by myself. Lol

Come out out and join us. Hopefully we haven't become kayak snobs and won't mind a topless version.
