Sometimes Stuff Happens: Lessons Learned on a Trip to Jewell Island

Recommended Posts

You know all those maneuvers we’re supposed to know as sea kayakers? All those safety things, rescue skills, expensive clothing and gadgetry that the books say we should have before dipping toes into the ocean? Well, sometimes you need them. On a recent SMSKN trip from Bailey Point to Jewell Island, five paddlers learned the importance of all of these elements when dealing with capsizes, cold water, and exhaustion on a windy afternoon in April. Come hear what happened and what we all learned as we candidly share our analysis of the situations and decisions during this ordinary-turned-epic trip.

This is a program of the Southern Maine Sea Kayaking Network, and all NSPN members are welcome.  Showtime is 7 pm on Thursday, July 1.    Click here for the link.
