EVENT

WHEN:
DATE: 07/27/2024
TIME: 8:30am-3:00pm (prompt start, estimated end)


DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water!  Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, and carpooling directions.)

Please note that this IS NOT the usual paddle from Perryville.

Use the GPS coordinates for the kayak launch, not the address.

We will be launching from Perryville Community Park paddling to Carpenters point to enter the North East River. We will then meander our way up the river to North east Community Park for the take out. The distance is about 7 miles as the crow flies but is greatly affected by choice of paddling path and wind conditions. We might even go up the narrow portion of the NE river to explore some.

Long boats, 14 ft or more, make this paddle a lot easier and a skirt is generally recommended. The area is popular with fishermen and there is a fair amount of powerboat traffic.

Be at Perryville Community Park so that we can quickly unload boats and organize the shuttle to leave for North East Community Park by 9:00am. Plenty of water and sunscreen are always a good idea for this open water trip. We will be stopping for lunch along the banks.

Please email the leader to attend with any equipment needs and include your cell phone number.

The take-out is at North East Community Park, MD: 39.593225, -75.948317

LOCATION NOTES:

General Information:
Recreational: Perryville is a very pretty paddle in the northernmost edge of the Chesapeake Bay. There are osprey and eagles that live in the area and a beautiful old railroad bridge. We paddle out of the kayak launch site in Perryville Community Park across Mill Creek and Furnace Bay to Carpenter’s Point and the Northeast River. Lunch is on one of the sandy beaches.

Difficulty & Must Haves:
It can be a fairly long paddle of about 9 miles and it can be windy. In July through October, aquatic weeds cover the area and make paddling difficult. Long boats, 14 ft or more, make this paddle a lot easier and a skirt is generally recommended. We modify this trip in the early season to accomodate beginning paddlers and shorter boats by decreasing the length to 6 miles with lunch at the end of the paddle. The area is popular with fishermen and there is a fair amount of powerboat traffic. The water is tidal and must be paddled at high tide.

Nice to Have & Human Interest:
We can usually depend on seeing lots of wildlife: eagles, osprey, an occasional deer.
