    ------->block island 2010<--------

    Who's interested in making this ride in July or August? Overnight stay, hang out @ Ballard's, rent scooters, eat & drink & be merry, face painting, you name it. I'd be interested in going provided there were a few of us committed. I've done the trip on both traditional and high speed ferry, in calm and stormy water. I think following the ferry to and fro wouldn't be a bad idea.. Of course the weather would be a factor as well.

    Barn Island? Explain!? I would anchor the ski in the bay overnight...as close to shore as possible.. I saw some skis tied up to a dock next to Ballard's. I will call them to inquire on pricing.

    The most expensive thing would be hotel.

    I was thinking overnight for a few reasons:
    With a few hours of drinks/sun/riding, riding back might be ....problematic!
    And, I saw a pretty decent increase/decrease ( depending on how you look at it) in conditions in the later afternoons while staying on the islands. On one ferry ride, swells were hitting the windows!!!! That's not something I would like to try on a ski.

    I'm off all summer, so pretty open to any date. Was thinking of getting feedback from people who don't have this luxury to throw some dates out.

    Barn Island is a public ramp in Stonington Ct. You can launch there and ride over. Thats the closest launch point.
