Hi there, folks! I've got two weeks off from work from 25 July to 8 August and I'm looking to do some day trips during that time. I'm up for whatever you want - coastal paddling, rivers, lakes, surfing, roll and socially-distanced self-rescue practice, stupid kayak tricks, etc.
I live near Newburgh, New York, and I know the Hudson River pretty well. I'm willing to travel anywhere within a few hours of home to paddle. I have paddled the Connecticut and Rhode Island coast a few times with ConnYak and other paddlers, but I don't know that area too well. I wasn't able to paddle with the club last year because I was out of the country during paddling season.
I'm in good shape, am comfortable in rough water, and have good rescue skills. My boat is a Dagger Stratos 14.5. It's a little shorter than a traditional sea kayak, but I haven't had any trouble keeping up on group paddles. I find it's a great do-anything day boat.
If interested, contact me at "Send email" link above for details.
Thanks very much!
