Chesapeake Bay Paddle Presentation
October 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Many of us have motored or sailed the length of Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the United States. But can you imagine paddling the entire 200+ miles? Chris Hopkinson recently completed the journey on a standup paddleboard in order to raise funds for the Oyster Recovery Partnership. Eastport Yacht Club’s Environmental Committee is bringing Chris to the club to put on a virtual talk for the public about his trip.
Chris started his paddle from Havre de Grace on September 18 and reached the Atlantic Ocean nine days later, September 26. That was the week of strong winds, which caused a route shift from the Western shore to the Eastern shore and made the journey extra difficult.
Kayaker Bryan Kent Gomes accompanied Chris and captured the trip to share with us. Check out his blog on baypaddle.org.
The presentation will be broadcast on Facebook. No registration is required, just log into facebook.com/events/2711577892414584.
