A PFD (Personal Floatation Device) is required for all of our paddles. Do you have your own PFD or have acces to one?

Yes.

Please tell us a little about your previous kayaking experience. It's okay if you don't have a lot of experience.

have been kayaking for about 20 years. I am an intermediate kayaker and can self-rescue (but prefer assisted rescue or not needing rescue, obviously).

What kind or type of kayak(s) do you own? If you'll be renting or borrowing from a friend that's okay too. We also have rental kayaks for members to use.

I have a 15 foot NC kayak. It was made in Seattle, WA. I also have an Old Town tandem (it's for sale).

Why do you kayak? Some people paddle to relax and get away from it all outdoors, others to stay fit. The real crazies paddle just for the joy and fun of it. What's your reason?

really enjoy being outdoors, doing things with other people, getting upper body and core workout.

What do you hope to get out of joining this group? Some people want to improve their paddling skills others just want to socialize with fellow paddlers. Is there anything special you're looking for?

more opportunities to kayak with other people

Introduction

Hi, I really enjoy sea kayaking, having started in Maine a number of years ago. My favorite kayak place is the Chesapeake Bay. I also hike and bike.
