What formal or informal training have you had and what skills? ie Able to do wet exit and re-entry, can do eskimo roll, have taken kayak safety courses

US Power Squadron boating safety and navigation; New Hampshire boating safety; bareboat charter certification. Owned power and sailboats for 25 years. can do wet-exit, paddle float re-entry, roll and re-enter; love to do surf landings on the beach - skills consistent with level 3. I like paddling in conditions that are more challenging, so I want to strengthen my bracing technique, and learn to roll.

Based on the Skill Levels on our Web Site About Us What Level kayaker are you?

level 3


I have always loved the water; our children grew up with sail and power boats on Lake Winnepesaukee. My wife and I enjoy seacoast living, walking and biking at the beach, kayaking, spending time with family, and trips to Boston.

What John S. is saying about this Meetup Group

I have found the group to be very welcoming to new/inexperienced paddlers. The opportunity to learn from and paddle with seasoned paddlers has helped my confidence immensely.
