We will meet at 8 a.m. (to avoid some of the heat) at Fr Desoto's Gulf Pier for a 8:30 launch to paddle around Egmont Key. Bring lots of water/drink and your lunch to eat on the beach at Egmont Key. Plan to return by 1 - 1:30, or sooner if weather conditions change route plan. Boats must be at least 15' with water-tight bulkheads. Dress for heat. Must reply so you can be contacted if plans change.
Paddle Difficulty: Level III because of open and possibly rough water, busy channel, distance of 10 - 12 miles, and speed of about 3.5 mph. See the Skills Self Assessment Chart on the web site and contact the leader with any questions. Please register on the web site or RSVP to the trip leader to allow notification of any changes.
