SPRING SEA KAYAKING TRIP TO JANE’S ISLAND

 

This spring we’re heading south to Maryland’s Eastern Shore. We’ll be staying next door to the crab capital of the world — Crisfield, Maryland.  Paddles will take us through the marshes and along the beaches of Jane’s Island, out into the Chesapeake Bay, and into Crisfield’s storied harbor.  Who’s ready to dig into a spicy pile of blue crabs?

The trip will run from Friday, May 17, to Monday, May 20. Headquarters for the weekend will be Jane’s Island State Park, where we are have reserved accommodations in a conference center and cabin. Those who want to camp can reserve a site in the park on their own. In either case, you must register with Linda A. Martin at Lindaamartin@sellpahomes.com (No exceptions)

New this year, we are offering a course in kayak navigation.  Students will be taught how to plot a route on a nautical chart one evening and will then be challenged to paddle it the next day. Details on that to come.

And as always, there will be a mix of paddles to pick from each day – some will be slower and shorter sight-seeing excursions in protected waterways. Others will cover more miles or seek challenging conditions.

To reserve a spot in the conference center or ask information about the trip, please contact Linda A. Martin at Lindaamartin@sellpahomes.com   A  $50 nonrefundable deposit is required. Information on the total cost for the weekend and meals will be coming at a later date. However, housing costs will be close to the $50 deposit.  Participants must have a fully equipped touring kayak, 14 feet or longer.
