Learn how to stay safe on the water and win a sea kayak!

Karen at Castine Kayak Adventures informed me that the 2009 Paddle Smart Symposium will be held on April 10 at Husson University in Bangor, from 5pm to 9:30pm.

Workshops, pool demos, interactive displays (and door prizes!) will round out this fun and instructive annual event. I've already picked up five sea kayak raffle tickets at Epic Sports!

Jeff Owen, President of MaCKRO, will present his "Preparing for the Kenduskeag" workshop which was very well received last year.


2009 Whitewater Season Begins Next Week


Update 3/29:

Other races, spaced one week apart after the St. George, include the Passy River Race in Belfast and the Souadabscook Stream Race in Hampden. Mackro has posted a schedule of upcoming races.

Mackro President Jeff Owen wants to attract new paddlers to the sport in Maine. MaCKRO is hosting race clinics for all novice paddlers (and anybody else who wishes to participate). The St. George River clinic will be held this Friday, March 27th at 4pm. Read about the clinics here.

Also, if you are not a member of Mackro, consider joining. There is no fixed membership fee this year; you decide how much you would like to donate when you send in your membership form. Mackro is a good resource for beginning and advanced paddlers alike.
