Boat Demo and Social

It’s been a busy weekend, starting with Alan’s graduation Friday night, then on Saturday Alan flew to Florida for the Tybee 500, and Tana returned to Boone to start looking for a summer job between school years. Once everyone was settled and on their way, Paul and I spent the afternoon at our kayak clubs boat demo and potluck social at Falls Lake.

The Carolina Kayak Club is a new kayak club that has just started up in our area. The club will be a large full service club; monthly meetings with guest speakers, a monthly newsletter, lots and lots of day and weekend paddling opportunities, and training clinics and workshops. This year I’m a member of the clubs Board of Directors and the Chair of the Safety and Training Committee. I'm really looking forward to all the social and paddling opportunities a club like this can offer to the paddling community.

For the boat demo, I brought Paul’s seakayak, with rudder, and with my Pacific Action Sail, and my Kruger Dreamcatcher set up with the Balogh Sailing Rig.

It was quite a party, more boats than paddlers, and a great barbecue and potluck. Eva, did a great job of documenting people and boats and gave me permission to post a link to her slide show of the day.

Dawn is was great to see you and Paul. I really liked sailing both of your boats. Thanks you so much for bring them and sharing them.
