Saturday Evening lecture Oct 31st. “The Ring Of Fire” Aleutian Island Expedition. Location: NESS, 70 Water St. Stonington, CT. 8 PM Start time
Inspired by the Aleutians rich culture and kayaking heritage, the journey through origins of kayaking in the lands of the native ‘Unangan’ (Aleut people) was awe-inspiring. The volcanic chain was originally populated with twelve to fifteen thousand people, renowned as the ‘best kayakers in the world’, living in subsistence harmony with the sea. The expedition developed an understanding of the ‘Aleut Story’ and how the fate of the early Sea Otter and Aleut populations were intrinsically linked
Additional information can be found on our Autumn Gales web site. That’s www.autumngales.com

Back in early January, I had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time with Jen Kleck (Aqua Adventures) and newly met paddling friends – Andrea, Chris, Dan, Tony and Victor down in Baja. For those not familiar with Jen, she holds the distinction of being the first North American to obtain the BCU Coach 5 award. And that’s in addition to being an all out fantastic person.
The area we paddled in, along the Punta Banda Peninsula (Victor’s backyard), and out to Isla Todos Santos, has amazing rock gardening, sea caves, and a ton of wildlife and including whales! In April, Jen and Victor are hosting the 1st Baja Kayak Fest. Check out the event here http://www.bajakayakfest.com/ and slide show of the area which includes photos from the trip.
Definitely a bucket list place for every kayaker!
Peace & Cheers, PaulaPost a comment

What others are sayingGreg Paquin is an excellent instructor. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in becoming a better paddler. We covered a wide range of strokes for paddling forward, reverse and sideways (really). Greg emphasized effective use of edging and learning to "own" your strokes. Rescues, rolls and canoe skills rounded out a very full day. It was easy to see real improvement in everyone there. At the end of the day Greg said "so, do you want to do assessment?" Far from being intimidated, we were all pretty confident at that point. "Sure" was an easy answer. Thanks Greg! - Tim
