To help save the Gay Head Light.
This morning just after 5 am, Dana Gaines stepped into his kayak and began to paddle. At 6 am he was still paddling, passing Squibnocket. At 7 am, he paddled on, approaching Edgartown. By 8:45 am, he paddled still, passing The Farm Institute.
Dana will paddle all day, until he reaches the shores of Aquinnah again- probably some time early to mid- afternoon, where he will be greeted with a Finish Line party, celebrating his efforts to raise money to save the Gay Head Lighthouse.
