Intro to Kayaking Woods Hole

Sunday, July 12, 2020 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM

This has morphed into a level 3 paddle at Woods Hole. Not much distance, but we will play in eddies and surfing as the tide floods into woods hole channel. Afternoon winds should build some sizable (2-3') tidal races (waves) for more surfing. This trip is ideal for those seeking to improve their paddling skills in moderate currents. Helmets are required. We will follow Covid-19 protocols with masks worn at the launch and distance while paddling.

Fall Wrap Up - Paddling Safely in Cold Weather/Water

Monday, October 14, 2019 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Paddling in cold weather/water can be hazardous to your health if you are not dressed and ready for immersion and dynamic conditions.

We will meet at Lake Cochituate with boats and cold weather gear, have a land session on how to dress, what to bring, where to paddle, and what to do in case of an emergency. Then we'll have fun trying out our winter gear on and in the water. Challenge by choice of course! Everyone is invited to participate whether you have a dry suit or not. Try some gear and work collectively for safety and enjoyment of cold weather paddling.
