Full Moon Paddle on Canadice Lake

The next full moon is on Monday August 3rd – next Monday! If the skies are clear then we’ll be paddling in the brilliant moonlight on Canadice Lake. This isn’t actually a picture of Canadice Lake, but it’s what I’m hoping to see on this outing.

The moon rises at about 9:00pm that night and is up all night. We’ll meet at the Canadice Lake Northeast Boat Launch ( 42.724077, -77.564481 ) on Canadice Lake Road in Canadice, NY at 8:45pm for a 9:00pm launch; I’m not sure when the night will be fully dark but it should be close to that time. We should see the moon come up over the hills and then paddle around until we’ve had enough. Howling at the moon will be tolerated on this night only.

Since it will be dark apart from the extreme moonlight that’s expected, we ask that all boats stay together on this paddle. If someone drifts away or gets lost then they will be hard to find in the darkness.


THIS IS ONLY WORTH DOING IF IT’S A CLEAR NIGHT!  If it’s cloudy or rainy the event is automatically cancelled!
