North Shore Kayak Club Kicks Off New Season

The North Shore Kayak Club has scheduled its first meeting of the year for Tuesday, May 15, to be held at the Port Washington Public Library at 7:30 p.m. The group will meet in the Hagedorn Room, located on the library’s top floor.

Now in its seventh year, the club (formerly named the Twin Pines Kayak Club) is comprised of adults who are recreational, flat-water paddlers - not white-water paddlers. Kayakers of all skill levels are welcome. The club members share an enthusiastic appreciation of the beautiful, local waters, fresh air and the camaraderie of paddling together. Members reside primarily in the Town of North Hempstead. Approximately one-half of the club’s trips originate in either Manhasset Bay or Hempstead Harbor, with the other half launching from other points on Long Island and other waterways around the New York metropolitan area.

An overview of the club will be presented at the meeting. Other agenda items include: trip planning for the 2012 paddling season that will appeal to novice and more experienced kayakers; safety classes and exercises on the water; discussion of possible future guest speakers and planning what community events the club will participate in this year.
