DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
The Harvest Full Moon is on Monday the 20th. However, Monday night is forecast as becoming overcast. Sunday evening is clear with a 98% moon–I defy you to see the difference. We will use the clear skies on Sunday evening.
We will meet at 5:30pm to be on the water about 6pm for a short paddle before viewing the celestial show. The moon rise is 6:55 and sunset is 7:06. We will be launching around low tide.
Everyone must have a white light to show after dark for safety.
The Yacht Club will be finishing a sail race event so we will defer to club members during our unloading and staging for launch.
Please RSVP to Bill Johnston so I know what to expect at the club.
WHERE: North East River Yacht Club
NEAREST ADDRESS: 62 Bayside Dr North East, MD
General Information: Recreational: we use the North East River Yacht Club for our full moon paddles. As a general rule we meet in time to paddle for a an hour or so then sit on the west side of the Northeast River to watch th moon rise. Then it is a short paddle back to the Yacht Club in the twilight. Expect to be back at the Yacht Club about an hour after sunset.
Difficulty & Must Haves: This is a very easy paddle for any skill level and boat length. We make this friendly, fun, and simple. Each kayak requires a steady white light to show its location should another boat approach. Flash-lights or headlamps are popular for this necessary light. Bring water and all required paddling gear.
Nice to Have & Human Interest: We may see an eagle or osprey during the short paddle. A camera is always popular on this paddle, and many paddlers bring a snack to eat while watching the moon rise.
Additional Notes & Shuttle Info: We use the Yacht Club because the trip lead is a member. Always defer to Yacht Club members when you are on the premises. Please do not block the parking lots. We quickly unload onto the lawn in front of the club and then park in the lot. The trip lead can provide the combo to the heads. Obey the speed limits in town.
