This is a Level 2 paddle. Please have the following:  One good headlamp, one rear-facing LED area light on your back or rear deck (Not too bright).  One back up flashlight in a dry-bag or on deck, 3-4 glow sticks (or equivalent). VHF Marine Radio is helpful, hopefully we will have at least five radios in the group. We plan to paddle about 6 statute miles with one or two stops to stretch our legs.  

Meet at 7:30 pm at 122 Fathom Drive Freeport 77541 in the Treasure Island neighborhood on the bay side just off the Blue Water Highway just before crossing the bridge from Freeport to Galveston.  (Note - $2 cash toll to cross bridge.)

Water temperature reaches its high of low to id 80s F but wind and water can vary. Food and hydration are strongly encouraged since we will be out several hours.  

To respect our neighbors, please unload quietly and park next door at the Treasure Island Municipal Building.  (No parking on street or grass, please.)  Both outdoor shower and boat wash hose are available for use.  We can use the boat ramp cater corner across the street.
