Due to strong winds, stand-up paddleboarder Jared Munch has revised his itinerary for this final day’s paddle of his circumnavigation of Lake Superior.
Here’s the plan:
At 1 p.m., he’ll depart from the University of Minnesota Duluth aquatic center on the Duluth-Superior harbor, near Minnesota Avenue and 15th Street.
At 1:30 p.m., he plans to paddle from the harbor, through the Duluth Ship Canal, onto Lake Superior.
At 2 p.m., he plans to be on the beach at Endion Station to greet the media and the public.
He’ll depart from that beach and paddle the Duluth shoreline to the mouth of the Lester River.
Between 4 and 5 p.m., he plans to reach the mouth of the Lester River.
Munch has said he invites others to paddle the final few miles with him, but due to today’s high and gusty winds, Munch encourages only experienced paddlers with proper safety gear to join him on his final stretch.
