Come to our Wednesday evening (5:30 pm - dark) pond socials! These are informal get-togethers at a pond in Concord (near Walden's Pond) to practice paddling skills, roll whitewater kayaks and play around.
Everyone is welcome to join us with their own boat! We have WW kayak rentals for $10. You must be able to transport the kayak from the boathouse to the pond and back (approx. 5 miles).
This is NOT an instructional/ class and knowledge of basic boating skills are necessary including demonstrating a wet exit before paddling on the pond (you will flip the kayak over and exit from under the water.) Pizza social at a local restaurant after for those interested! Contact Melanie (pondsocials@amcbostonpaddlers.org) with any questions.

Boston Harbor Inner Islands: Level 2

Paddling Date: Sun August 3, 2014

Boston Harbor offers paddlers a variety of interesting islands and destinations, yet is very close and convenient. The inner islands offer protection from waves, but boat traffic and channel crossings are the main hazards. This paddle will visit Spectacle, Georges, and other islands depending on wind, weather, and group. The requirements for this trip are: (1) a sea kayak (14' or greater) with bulkheads fore and aft, deck lines, spray skirt, and PFD, and (2) must be able to paddle comfortably for 13 miles, wet exit and re-enter your kayak with an assisted rescue. Expect to spend five hours on the water with breaks.
