Sea Scouts of Ship 1610 spent the afternoon at a "social distance" event. This was our Kayak Rodeo at Dandy Point. Scouts demonstrated skills important to kayaking: paddling in a strait line for a quarter mile, backing up for 100 yards, paddling sideways, making pivots, and recovering from a capsize. Overcast skies meant that we didn't burn like a crisp while exploring Factory Point. Making great use of the kayaks donated by Bob and Pixie.
With water depth of only 4 feet, mild current, and protection from the 16 knot nor'easterly, this area is perfect for learning kayak skills. Once the skills are acquired, there are white sandy beaches and wildlife filled marshes that beckon to the adventurous. Looking forward to coming back here again.
