Paddle Log 2013

The 2013 paddle season was notable for bagging 2 of my 3 open "dream paddles" - Boon Island Maine and the Martha's Vineyard to Nantucket interisland one-way. I also completed section-paddling New Hampshire's coast from the Maine to Mass borders. This was a season with lots of wildlife sightings (seals! bald eagles!) and only one foul-weather expedition. Check it out:

12.9 miles Minot 12.9 mi
Piscataqua River Paddle Piscataqua 30.0
4.5 mi around newburyport harbor Newburyport 4.5
18.5 Miles Spectacle/Peddocks 18.5
Roll/Rescue practice on Horn Pond Horn Pond 1.7
9.2 miles in Gloucester Harbor Gloucester Harbor 9.2
10.2 miles from Scituate to Cohasset Scituate to Cohassett 10.2
19.3 Miles Boon Island, Maine 19.3
Flagstaff Lake paddle Flagstaff Lake 20.6
MV-ACK Paddle Route Martha's Vineyard to Nantucket 34.8
route - 17.3 miles Rye to Hampton (NH) 17.3
running with the wind total 179.2

2013's total was an increase from 2012's 118.2 miles and a near-tie with 2011's record 180 miles/2010's 178.

Block Island carries over from last year's dream paddle list. For next year, I'm adding the insane 90-mile traverse of the Bay of Fundy to celebrate the return of the international ferry. Bring it on!
