  2. Happy New Year everyone! Of course on this day, I'm thinking about the coming year. I'm posting my kayaking goals for 2013, in no particular order, but I did try to make them measurable. Get off the foot pegs Find the ‘real’ edge of my boat (not just the one in my head) and get on it – this will involve improving my high brace sculling and getting wet Purposefully put my boat in a standing wave and do not freak out and windmill paddle. Learn to be comfortable with the instability and overcome the disorientation. Encourage a new paddler and teach a skill BCU 3 Star Paddle more than in 2012 Have fun and be safe!What are your goals?

  4. The NSPN New to Sea Kayaking Workshop Pool Session is May 11, 2013, 1:00-3:30 at the Haverhill High School Pool, 137 Monument Street, Haverhill, MA 01832. We have about 16 participants of the Gould Barn NTSKW that signed up for the pool session. As was done at the Gould barn session, we will break up into groups with a leader or leaders around a kayak. The goal is to have participants become comfortable in the boat on water and try out a wet exit without a spray skirt. I'll have skirts available if people want to try with one as well. The rest of the session is demonstration and teaching of forward stroke, edging, sweep turns, low brace, and possibly a T-rescue - as time permits. Volunteer leaders and boats are needed. Please post here or PM me if you are available. Thanks! Bob
