Re: Pure Awesome -- The Block Island Challenge -- June 23, 2018.

I saw that, seems awfull! The up side is tides are under 2 knots and should be going with you most of the trip. The down is its 40+ miles of paddling at maybe 4 knots.
Hope everyone has tow/rescue service (at least $180) Iíd check and make sure theyíll come and get you. Also better have VHF($120+-),flares ($60 at least), GPS($220++++)

Donít want to be negative, but thatís a lot of open water to cross and then freedive. Bring at least a gallon of water and lots of cliff bars.

GOOD LUCK!
