How many years have you been paddling?

Many, but not frequently. Until I bought my kayak in 2013. Now I belong to 4 kayaking groups!

What type or model kayak/canoe do you own?

Bought a 15.6 Willow Sea Kayak by Current Design. Has 3 hatches. I also have a spray skirt.

What other outdoor sports do you enjoy?

Hiking, walking, swimming, camping, snow shoeing, XC skiing...

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

I attending the free kayaking clinics in April and May 2013. Have attended one class "yoga for kayakers." Did the Haverhill High School Pool session, self and 2 person rescue, wet exit, etc. ...just need to put it all to good use! (I did another self and assisted rescue at Pawtucaway, and a session at wmca in Salem, ma. Both last year. Can do wet exit, assisted rescue, self rescue, have most of not all required (suggested) gear including dry suit.) March 30, 2016 Addendum: I can now add on to my skills training that I'm in the process of taking the AMC NH Paddlers Developmental Sea Kayaking skills, can now do wet exit with spray skirt, in a pool. Next class will be doing this, and self and 2 man rescue in a lake. Last session will be performing all these skills in the ocean.

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