Today was a race to the finish: the takeout beach is small, and we have 17 boats (between 3 groups) that all need to be there. Thankfully, our group was a) closer and b) faster, so we should have good odds at getting there first.
We had breakfast at 6am and pushed off as soon as people had eaten. We wound up hitting the boat beach at 7:30am (for reference, the outfitter is supposed to meet us there at 9:00am)
And we were the only ones there. Let the derigging commence!
