ATTENTION ALL PADDLERS
  Cold weather is coming and with it added risk. If you are prepared for conditions ,these risks can be reduced. One key element is proper equipment including clothing.

  As a Red Cross certified canoe and kayak instructor , and a recently certified ACA  Canoe  instructor , I would have to  defer to their policy . When paddling where the water temperature is 60 degrees Fahrenheit or colder, a wetsuit is a must and a drysuit is highly recommended. This is also the case if the combined air and water temperatures are below 120 degrees Fahrenheit Appropriate gloves , hat, and  footwear  are obvious additions. 

  At least 1 change of waterprotected clothing is also required . This clothing must provide warmth even when wet. 


                  Frank Pearce,   Canoe/Kayak Chair

 

After this coming weekend -all  paddlers must meet these requirements.

Wetsuits can be purchased online  and  occasionally in stores for as low as $60.00 A  local chain has for  $100.00

At certain times something more than a wetsuit is needed.

 

  Leaders must clear all trips with the Paddling Chair before posting.

New!  Feb 26 to Mar 1  - MORNINSTAR CHALET LONDONDERRY , VT.   This trip is basically a repeat of the trip scheduled for the previous weekend, except that this trip is 3 days, not 4.  Arrive anytime on Thursday Feb 26.  Private home, sleeps 10.  Price is based on number of people signing up.  Expect $105 pp, for 3 nights with breakfast and dinner.  Could be more.  Leader: Eileen Greve  609-204-6451  egreve212@gmail.com
