PADDLE THE BORDER * PTB * FALL

Sunday October 3rd 2021 18th Year

A Canoe and Kayak paddle on the Connecticut River held in May and October. PTB was started as a way for community organizations from Vermont and New Hampshire to work together to ” Show Case” our shared asset, the Connecticut River. PTB promotes the natural, cultural, scenic and recreational resources of the Connecticut River, in a way that would also provide an economic boost to the area. PTB is held twice a year weather permitting-no rain dates are planned.

The Fall Paddle 2021 date is Sunday October 3rd, from the Newbury Boat Launch beside the Newbury-Haverhill Bridge, to the Bugbee landing in Bradford, Vermont.

The Spring Paddle 2022 date is May 22: [ 19th Year]

From Woodsville Community Field to the Bedell Bridge State Park Boat Launch off Route 10, Haverhill Corner, NH.

There is a shuttle service from the take out, to the launch sight. This Shuttle Service has been providing by Butler Bus Company (we thank them).The Shuttle Service is available from 10am to 11am; This gives us a suggested launch time of 10:30 to 11:30am. The approximate paddle time for the spring and fall paddle is 3-1/2 to 4 hours.

All events are weather permitting, and all participants must abide by safe boating rules and regulation.

Covid 19 Guidelines:

  • Wearing Mask recommended, when on the Bus and when volunteers help you get in and out of your boat. 6 foot spacing in line.

  • If you choose to use your own transportation All Safe Boating and Covid Rules Still Apply
