MITA member Gary York, also a member of the North Shore Paddlers Network, recently shared with us his trip report from a serious paddler’s pilgrimage – downeast to the Bold Coast and Cobscook Bay. At the end of the Maine Island Trail, along the Canadian border, the Cobscook region is famous for its strong currents, remote shoreline, dense fog, cold water – and stark beauty.

In preparing for the trip, Gary and his companion assessed their paddling skills realistically, did research on the area and its tides and currents, waited for a good weather window, and sought advice from locals. The result – a unique and beautiful adventure! Click here to check out the detailed report, with plenty of practical advice. Thanks for sharing, Gary!
