Middle Bay Challenge: First Attempt in South and Southeast Posted May 24, 2002 Okay, anyone want to get starting coordinates for us? From the looks of the wind forecast, we'll want to start on the west shore of the bay at roughly N30°26.235'. Also, we need to declare a planned launch time. The earlier the better, since it'll be a relatively long paddle, and then there's the drive home. I'm thinking something like 8am for a water time (barring overwhelming fog, which would delay the launch) would be best (although it means I'll have to get up really, really early, it means we should get home at a reasonable hour).
