    On-line nautical NOAA charts

    Mike, that’s what I do in a mix of photoshop and acrobat.
  6. I definitely agree with your first statement! I don’t believe the BC path is about competition; it’s a system that provides a path for learning. Each individual can determine what path is right for them. When you take the BC trainings and assessments, it’s never about comparing one person to another; it’s about each person’s growth and achievement in kayaking. i would argue that training and practicing is the best way to safely get to the places most others never get to, and BC is one way to get that training. EDITed to add that we all have our own path, as long as we’re safe on the water, it doesn’t matter how we get there.

    Surfing Saturday?

    I would really like to go surfing Saturday, but Bob reminded me how crowded the beaches are going to be. Can anyone suggest a place to surf without too many people? Scituate where the North River comes out? Is the James Landing boat ramp at Conservation Park possible as a put in? Thanks!

    Thursday’s weather is looking great and it’s the longest day of the year- think of how long we can stay out on the water! Come join us!

    NSPN Yard Sale - Saturday April 28th

    Attached is a map of the yard sale locations - with Suz's address noted in Red. No need to RSVP - just come by with kayaking gear to sell. Her sale starts at 9am. If you're coming to sell, you can arrive up to an hour ahead. Park on the road, or if you don't mind being blocked in, you can pull in and park by the barn. Looking forward to seeing lots of folks there - lots of great deals on used and NEW kayaking gear!
  13. NSPN Yard Sale April 28th 9am 31 Highland Road - Merrimac, MA Periodically, we'll hold an informal yard sale at an NSPN event and a couple folks who have gear to sell, will bring their extra gear. This year, one of NSPNs longtime members and a pillar in the paddling community, is having a yard sale and she's offered her expansive yard on that day for other NSPN members to come and sell their paddling gear (and maybe score a couple deals as well!). Suz Hutchinson has been hoarding loads of Kokatat and North Water gear and will be selling loads of new and unused samples along with clearing out the closets of extra tents and camping supplies. The yard sale is being held at her home and her town is doing a town-wide yard sale that weekend as well, so it's a great opportunity to have lots of buyers for your gear or lots of yard sales to haunt! The town will be producing a map of all of the yard sales happening that weekend and I will publish it here when available. We will also provide a start time when available. In the meantime, if you are interested in selling your gear, here's what you need to do: Gather your extra gear. Price the gear and place your initials on the tag (just in case buyers mix up items). Find a table or tarp to place your items on. Show up on Saturday morning to sell your wares! Hope to see you there! Gear Sale Flyer.pdf
