Denning's Point Paddle

06/10/2010 - Paddled from public ramp at Beacon train station to Denning's point and back.
The wind was fairly strong with 1' - 2' waves pushing me from behind. My GPS says I reached 7 mph going around the point.

After round the point the wind stopped and Fishkill creek was like glass. I explored the creek up to the falls and then headed back into the wind and waves. My boat goes very well into the waves and I made good time getting back. Overall average was about 3.5 mph for 5.5 miles.

This is a nice easy paddle to do after work but be aware of the wind and weather conditions. The river can get rough there.
