Sunday, November 1st there will be a one way paddle starting at the WaccaWache Marina to East Bay Park in Georgetown a distance of 18 miles.

In order to ride the river current and outgoing tide lets plan to meet in Georgetown at 11:30 AM and drop sufficient transportation for the return trip to Wacca Wache. We will take a short stretch break at Hagely Landing in Pawley’s Island, a distance of 11 miles. If anyone does not wish to make the entire trip they can leave a vehicle at Hagley Landing on the way down to Georgetown. Tour boats 14 ft or longer recommended.

Bring snacks, water, rain jacket, PFD. Because Georgetown is lacking in watering holes open on Sunday I suggest we congregate at Kay Ray’s at Wacca Wache Marina after the paddle to celebrate our last scheduled paddle of the year.

See you Sunday at the Park!
