This event is in its 13th year. The PTB was started as a way for community organizations from Vermont and New Hampshire to work together to showcase our share asset, the Connecticut River. PTB promotes the natural, cultural, scenic, and recreational resources of the Connecticut River in a way that also provides an economic boost to the area. PTB is held twice a year, weather permitting.
The October Paddle goes from the Newbury/Haverhill Crossing boat launch to Bugbee Landing in Bradford (2016 date is Sunday, October 2).
*All events are weather permitting, and all participants must abide by safe boating rules and regulations. So come, meet new friends and fellow paddlers, whatever the reason join the crowd for Paddle The Border.
