Stage 3
Sebastian Inlet to Fort Clinch

Ready for some more?  Just keep heading north and after about 170 nautical miles you'll run into Fort Clinch just before you cross into Georgia.  You will paddle thru heavily populated areas and some really nice areas. 

Again during this stage there are no checkpoints between Sebastian Inlet and Fort Clinch.  You are on your own but you must keep reporting your progress at least once in each 24 hour period.  If you have photos or videos to off load, you may arrange a meeting with a race official. 

When you get to Fort Clinch you should call and report your arrival after signing in at the orange lock box.  Someone will come down and meet you.  The lockbox with the official time clock and log sheet will be placed on the beach near the wooden lookout on the inside of the island.  If you approach from the inside waterway, you will run right into the landing beach.  If you approach from outside, you will make a left turn thru 270 degrees to hit the beach.


The exact location of the lockbox is not known and subject to change depending on the whims of the park rangers.  The lat/lon will be made known to you via cell phone during one of your check in calls.

Since we must remain fluid during this challenge, the campsite (if any) for the WaterTribe race management command vehicle will not be known until closer to your actual arrival.  Upon arrival at this checkpoint you must call the reporting number and someone will come down to meet you.  If you have left a cache with us, it will be provided.  You may also get a ride to local stores for re supply, maintenance of equipment, laundry, etc.  Please note that it could take a few hours for someone to meet with you since we may be spread out over distances of a couple of hundred miles.

There may or may not be a campsite that you can use at this checkpoint.  This is an expedition, right?  You have to be flexible and stay loose.  If you are arriving at night, you might want to stealth camp and then land on the beach in the morning.
