From Montario Point
September 9, 2012
Launch Time 12:00 PM
Note; We have heard that the water level
at Lakeview Marsh is low making the launch sites at
Montario Point and the bridge at South Sandy Creek
less than desirable. We will still meet at
Montario Point to check that launch site, but if it
is not going to work we will caravan a few miles
north to an alternate launch site at the end of
Pierrepont Point Road. This site is located on
Lakeview Pond. Try to be on time at Montario
Point. Otherwise, if we decide to move the
launch site, you may get left behind.
Marsh is located at the east end of Lake
Ontario. This trip will be slow paced and
designed to give beginners a good experience. We
will stop at the beach on the lake for a snack
break. It is also a great place for a swim and a
good place to practice a wet exit from your boat
if you have never done it. Bring plenty of
snacks for the beach. We want this to be a
relaxing trip. Please
be sure that you are properly dressed for the
paddle and have all appropriate equipment.
