  1. If you end up with an alternate date that isn't 10/1 and works for me, I'd like to come if there is space. Late to the party though!
  2. Registration is now closed in order to allow us to make plans for Sunday.
  3. Hello Qian I am going to send you a private message with some more information, so keep an eye out there. Thanks! Janet
  4. Yes, unfortunately this overlaps with Gary's Lobster Buoy trip! Too few fall weekend for everything we want to do.
  5. It's already September and this will be the last skills practice session of the year (although people can always organize more!) For this week, we will be doing something a bit different in hope of giving participants some choice in the plans. The rough plan is to launch from Fisherman's Beach in Swampscott, and if conditions allow, to do some practice with launching and landing in surf nearby. From there, a group may stay put and play in the surf, while others head out for a journey. We can practice skills along the way based on participant interests - maybe some rocks, maybe some rescues, etc. When you sign up HERE the form has a space to put your interests. Thanks and hope to see you there! Janet and Sue
  6. Anyone have some they aren’t using? I’ll buy it from you. Ideally 2 inch thick, at least 12x16 inches.
  7. Sept 3, 6 of us headed out from Pavilion beach (Gloucester) to check out the Gloucester Schooner festival (potentially pronounced Shooner or Sooner, if you are from the midwest). https://www.maritimegloucester.org/schooner-festival We started by looping around the inner harbor to look at some of the docked boats - lots of action! Fishing boats, rowing boats, launches, giant schooners - really busy for pre-10am. A few docked schooners had long lines of people waiting in line for tours. Maybe next time... After the sightseeing, we headed over to the pocket beach by the breakwater for some swimming/rolling, and lunch #1, before heading north along the coast for a scenic paddle with circling schooners in the background. Despite the very tame forecast of seas < 1 foot, it was actually quite "sporty" and everyone had a good time playing in the waves. Thanks to Barb, Jody, Dana, Vlad, and Steph for joining me on this beautiful day. I hope the fireworks were worth the wait!
  8. Trip is full but you can fill out the form to be added to waitlist
  9. Vlad, please make sure you sign up on the google form as that will be where I get the float plan info and share final plans from. Thanks!
  10. Oh dear, I did not know about the Schooner festival! May rethink launch location, stay tuned. Time the same and somewhere in MA, for sure
  11. A couple of us are planning to paddle Pavillion Beach (Gloucester) this Saturday, launching at 9:30am sharp. Exact route to be determined by participant interest but be prepared for 10+ nautical miles. Sea kayak with flotation and deck lines required, bring a lunch, and a helmet if you want to do any rock play along the way. Should be a nice day! Sign up at the link below if you want to come. https://forms.gle/NVwfYSwotwi62ow28

  13. Trip is now full, but you can sign up for the waitlist using the same link.
