> We will depart from the Frances Fleet dock in Galilee, RI onboard of the 'Lady
> Frances'. Info on the boat and directions to the dock can be obtained by Googling FRANCES FLEET.
> Birds sighted on past Canyon trips are posted on Paul Letoile's RIBIRD Website.
> It has been a couple of years since we have been able to go the Canyon area and
> explore the shelf edge area 100 miles south of RI. The Lady Frances has 40 bunk beds
> to accommodate everyone onboard. The idea is to travel overnight and be at the shelf edge
> in the Fishtail area at dawn. We will spend 6 to 7 hours exploring this area for rarities.
> The cost of the trip will be $235 per person. This is the break even point if
> there are 35 of us on the trip.
> Birds seen on past trips include Great, Cory's, Sooty, Manx and Audubon's
