A Brief Overview of Past Gatherings
This weekend is for intermediate paddlers and instructors seeking one last weekend for the season on the Bay before winter sets in. Together, we’ll work through a practical yet informal weekend of sea kayaking with emphasis on changing conditions, safety/risk management, and open crossings.
On-land workshops will include:
- trip planning,
- leadership, and
- group management.
On-water sessions will focus on:

- boat handling,
- boat repair,
- leadership, and
- incident management.
Evenings will include socials and special presentations. The instructional team is volunteering for the weekend, in order to keep costs down. We expect everyone to come ready to share, participate, and have fun. Your development as a paddler will be entirely up to you. We’re here to create opportunities for learning. – Okay, here’s the real reason. David and Tim wanted to get wet and cold in wind and waves with a bunch of other paddlers, then come back to warm cabins and tell lies about it in great detail.Photo Kent Smith
