Skills training, socials, and sea kayaking trips with the Boston AMC - May 2022


Recommended Posts

There are a number of interesting opportunities to paddle with the AMC this month. I've done the Sea Kayak Tuneup several times, and it's an excellent skills refresher and practice ahead of the upcoming season. I'm just passing these along - follow the links for more info and to ask questions of the organizers. You don't need to be a member of the AMC to participate in AMC events and trainings.

May Events
 

Paddling Social (WW, SK, FW, SUP - everyone), May 26
Come and meet fellow paddlers in-person and without masks! We will meet at Lake Cochituate in Natick at 6:30 until dusk. We will have whitewater, sea kayak, and canoes to try out (bring appropriate clothing) and burgers, veggies, and seltzer. You are welcome to bring sides or desserts.
Let's talk about hopes & plans for this season and meet leaders that will be posting trips. We ask that you register if you want to eat so we can bring right amount.

Sea Kayak Tuneup, May 28
The sea kayakers will at Lake Cochituate on Saturday to spend the day refreshing strokes, turns, and rescues. It is important all leaders and coleaders attend if possible, although everyone in our paddling network is welcome. This is a great opportunity for coleaders to meet and paddle with other leaders. There will be instructors for various levels (except for those new to paddling, sorry). Registration is required.

Westport River (SK), May 14
This beautiful river starts in narrow marshes and gradually widens into a bay and eventually Horseneck beach. This will be an easy, tide assisted 12 mile paddle in protected water. A great way to start your season.

Note the Paddling Splash & Social has been rescheduled for Thursday, June 2, 2022, 6:30PM - 8:30PM.

Also note that Lake Cochituate is a MA State Park.  While "entry" is free, there is a parking fee based on license plate.  If you don't have a MA State Park pass (a great deal for MA seniors), parking is $8 with a MA plate, and $30 with an out-of-state plate.  No season passes are available for out-of-state plates.
