  1. I would like to buy these. When were they purchased? I have a pair of these and i love them thank you, karen- please send me an personal email
  2. I found an update to this story in the Provincetown Independent paper. According to the story, the victim, Carole Madru was attending to a wound care patient in Provincetown and put in near the patient's home on Commercial St Provincetown. The body was found across Cape Cod Bay on a beach on 6a in North Truro. This makes sense given the wind direction. The boat was an older fiberglass boat, unknown if it was a single or a double. The victim was not wearing a PFD but the a PFD was found on the beach near the body and another was found in the boat. The body of a second victim, a friend visiting from France, was not found and a search was suspended after many hours of effort by the Coast Guard. The Chatham mystery piece was that the victim was suppose to return in her car to the Chatham area by 6 pm. But it does not appear that that was her put-in point. Her ultimate location was tracked by her cell phone which was left in her car in Ptown. The story does not say what the victim was wearing but my guess is, if she wasn't wearing a PFD then it is quite likely she wasn't wearing clothing for immersion. I think it would be very helpful if the media were to stress the dangers of cold water at this time of year and the importance of watching weather and sea state so this information could be better disseminated to the general public. I know our club has made efforts in the past to educate the public, but what do you think about writing a letter to the Cape Cod Times and Provincetown papers about safety?
  3. It was one of the first warm, beautiful, but breezy days of the spring. Wind 15-20 kts with 3-5 ft seas from the SW, conditions suited to well-prepared and skilled paddlers. This paddler’s body was found In Ptown, 50 miles away in less than 24 hrs after their put in from Chatham. Very sad, but it will be interesting to find out the details https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/05/23/metro/body-kayaker-found-authorities-searching-companion/?outputType=amp

  5. Thanks for setting this up. I will try to join you in the second half hour. I have a zoom tai chi class from 10-1030. Karen
  6. Sorry I missed this. Would love to join the next one. Might have a zoom yoga class at 530 on Thursday. But 5:00 or after dinner seems good (unless I'm paddling on my pond!). Karen
  7. What a great topic! I would love to attend but will be out of town. Would it be possible to get some notes, a second session (I might offer my home) or someone to review it with me? Karen
  8. I'm sorry to miss this trip with you all. I love Saddleback. I have my yearly family extravaganza at the cape that week. Have a great time. Karen
  9. I second what Pru and Kate do. I have a light weight recycled rug material which I place on the front hood of my car. The rear eyebrow prevents back use. I use velcro straps to hold the rug to the towers of the rack up top in a wind. So you don't need to pick all that weight up from the floor, I built quite easily, a frame/cart on wheels with slings where the kayak sits at waist height. I roll the cart up to the car, place the stern on the hood, stabilize the boat if necessary, walk to the bow and just slide it onto my saddles. No muss, no fuss! I would be happy to send a picture of my cart if anyone wants to use it for help building. All of it is creatively adapted, heavy duty wire shelf material, easily available at the homeware hardware stores. It's pretty cool if I don't say so myself! And I haven't hurt my back or neck since using it.
  10. I will bring my special deviled eggs or if I have more time an egg/spinach/broccoli crustless quiche. Karen Gladstone
