    Paddle to Nubble Lighting - Saturday 11/24

    Jane, We often paddle up here after dark. Stern light so other boats can see you. Quickly accessible head lamp or light to signal other boats. To be determined by group but yellow chem for helmet and green chem hanging off bow for out of boat experiences at night common. Cathy too late for non New England paddlers but is this something they do every sat post turkey day? Me planning for 2019.

    Saguenay Beluga kayak - camping

    Hi, Anybody else going to the Solstice paddle on Saturday? Sherry and I plan to chat at the potluck about the trip. I realize most of you don't know me. I paddle a lot with Robert and Cathy and the Jonathan and Kelsey and Prudence and Mike Habich and Dave Mercer via the Carmody training events. My only club paddles are Gerrish Circumnav last Feb. and the Easter paddle. Cheers, Karen
  4. Is anybody using the Motionize Kayak Tracker Edge for training to improve the efficiency of your forward stroke? If so what is your opinion of the product?

    Sorry, I don't know the area. Are you talking about launching from Piscataqua River Public Boat Ramp

    I would be up for your Gerrish circumnav or your Wallis to Odirorne shuttle. I haven't been in current since last October and am rusty. I've never crossed the Piscataqua but have been told it's some of the fastest current in the area. For me a mistake on my ferry angle and an out of boat experience in 40 degree water to start the trip is not what I'm interested in. As this is CAM, if the rest of the group prefer the Newcastle Island circumnav there is always another weekend for me.
