I am a somewhat hard core kayaker; mostly solo in the ocean; I paddle year round if it doesn't get too cold (in which case time to take out the skiis.) Live in Chappaqua. Paddle Maine, NY, CT, anywhere. Love the ocean.
Like I said above, George and his people were well prepared for an evening paddle that had some wind and chop. His leadership was clear and concerned and not terribly overbearing.
