P&H Cetus

Fishing, ice fishing

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

Have taken a number of multi-day sea kayaking and whitewater courses over the years that all included safety training and skills. I have a strong roll, have demonstrated practice and real rescues in open ocean, rough water scenarios. I'm good at both day and night navigation, trip planning, playing in tide races and currents. Have some surf skills. Regularly organize or participate in skills sessions with peers. (Note: I hold no BCU or ACA certifications)

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

based on the skill levels as defined for this group - Expert (however, among the sea kayaking community at-large, I would be considered an intermediate paddler)


Love all types of kayaking: sea kayaking, whitewater (Class II) and kayak fishing. I'm very safety oriented and like to work on improving skills, learning new skills and constant practice of both.

What Cathy F. is saying about this Meetup Group

Its a very friendly group....truly a group where all skill levels are welcome.
