Evening Paddling in the Mystic River Tandem

I love kayaking, but there is something about a canoe. We had family down for the Memorial Day weekend. After everyone left and the dishes were cleaned, we decided to put the canoe in the water and go for a paddle. A kayak always seems to take a little bit more forethought, if only to get the right clothes on.

I'm working on a new strip-built sliding seat rowing boat. I'm really excited about the design and am impatient to get it on the water.

Making the Coaming on the Stitch and Glue Night Heron

I recently purchase a GoPro video camera. I get tired of the standard angles most paddling videos incorporate so I want to work on getting unusual perspectives.

For the past few years, my friends Greg Paquin and Paula Reigel (Owners of Kayak Waveology) have organized the Autumn Gales rough water sea kayaking symposium in my home waters of Fishers Island Sound. Greg is a BCU coach and he brings in other coaches from locally and abroad. This year he had Nigel Dennis, Peter Jones, and Harry Whalen from the UK as well as Carl Ladd from Rhode Island as well as local guides such as my friend Carl Tjerandsen. I was invited in the local guide capacity.
