Launched on incoming tide and headed out around Marblehead and down the coast.
Stopped in Nahant for a rest and talked with people on the beach.
Made it to the other side of Nahant when a huge storm was over Somerville. I beached the kayak to wait it out as there was lightening associated with the storm.
When the storm moved off and theed wind died down i headed for Winthrop.
At Winthrop i stopped and rigged lights for night running as i wanted to make Castle Island to be picked up as there was no place to camp.
Also i wanted to be on the other side of the harbor before the tall ship parade of sails.
