Tentative Schedule

***PLEASE NOTE: All participants should park (for free) at the Park and Ride in Portsmouth, NH (Exit 3a off 1-95) and meet in the C&J bus terminal in Portsmouth. Island staff believes we need to run two shuttles: one departing at 12:15pm and one departing at 1:00pm from the Park and Ride, which will transport participants to the Market St. dock in time for their boat to Appledore Island.***
