How long have you been paddling? Under what conditions? We do NOT paddle whitewater (rapids), but we paddle everything from totally flat water to 3-foot waves.

About 10 years. Mostly calm, but I have been in 2-3ft seas with heavy winds. I've been through buddy and individual rescue, and would like to rehearse this again come spring/summer.

If you own a kayak, what type and how long? (say "N/A" if you don't own) If you paddle a stand-up paddleboard, whitewater kayak or inflatable kayak, this is NOT the club for you.

Necky Looksha, 17ft x 22 1/2 in, fiberglass

I enjoy sea kayaking and I have my own boat (a fiberglass Necky Looksha IV). I look forward to joining fellow y'all the weather warms up. It's been a few years since my last rescue class. Anyone want to join me in a refresher class this spring?

What Thad H. is saying about this Meetup Group

There were lots of folks I hadn't met before, but Madeline is a terrific organizer. I had a great time.
