  1. The unexpected spring refreeze has resulted in a couple of fair weather types dropping off this instructional. Sadly for myself, we had a full house so I had dropped the pricing by $50 but that will work out for any last minute takers. Truth is that the water is already unseasonably warm so this should be quite the civilized event. Polar Paddle Practicum 2 4/28-4/30 2017 Kick start your active water paddle play season. Join John Carmody (Sea Cliff Kayakers) and Gerry Polinsky (Sea Sherpa Kayak) for their 2nd annual, early season, rough water skills training event. Like The Godfather, #2 is going to be even better than the original. This course is geared towards intermediate paddlers looking to refine their open water skills in a kinda’ cold water setting – fall through spring being the best season for active water. Classroom time and housing will be staged out of a camp located mid coast RI. Catered meals, warm showers, comfy cots and centralized location makes for very civilized pre and post paddle living. Paddle play itself will follow where conditions are best along the CT/RI shoreline. Rock gardening, shore surf and tiderips are among the promising possibilities. There will be no predetermined curriculum as this intimate event is focused on individual paddlers’ wants and needs. As this area offers such interesting and complex conditions, participants will have an opportunity to take an active role in determining the daily paddle plans and grow their conditions forecasting tool box. Costs are $500 w/o housing OR $625 including housing Contact [email protected] to register or if you have any questions

  5. Gerry Polinsky (Sea Sherpa Kayak) and Matt Kane (Prime Paddlesports) are hosting the second of three Open Water Workshops on Oct. 17-18. This one is a camp focused on refining intermediate skills. Venues options will be the overfalls/races in the Fisher Island Sound and rocks/surf along coastal RI – wherever the best conditions takes us. There is a unique housing option for this event: Matt has access to a beautiful historic house located walking distance from the entrance to the Avery Pt Campus in Groton, Ct. Sleeps 15 comfortably, great kitchen, multiple bedrooms and baths, huge covered porch for drying gear. We’ve held events here before and it’s always a blast. Costs including housing is $200/1day or $375/weekend or, if you do not need housing, $150/1 day or $275/weekend. The house is available starting the eve of the 16th. We’ll cover boat control and paddling technique in conditions, rough water forecasting, dressing for shoulder season paddling, etc… We pride ourselves on offering “individualized instruction” which means our itinerary is dictated by your individual interests and needs not by a rigid itinerary. This is a great time of year as the waters are still quite warm, power boat traffic is down and conditions are reliably active.
