Wareham to Mattapoisett

I set out for another 37 nm trip.. conditions started and ended okay small chop less than 10 mph winds. However, Marion and Mattapoisett Harbors were not cooperative. 2-3 foot chop with sets of 4-5 foot mixed in. Water going in 2 sometimes 3 directions. Made for a Rollercoaster type of paddling.

You need to be good at reading the water to pick your best line of attack. Never head on unless you want to get soaked. 10-30 degrees works best but be ready for fast brace turns to stay stable.

Does this look like fun? Come join me.

Trip out and back takes 6 hrs paddling 1 to 2 resting at Neds Point Light.
