I just had the great experience of going on two different NACK paddles in less than 12 hours! (See below for the Fire Island Light paddle) And they certainly couldn’t have been any more different. Friday night’s Sunset/ Moonrise/ Fullmoon paddle from Mt Sinai Harbor over to Port Jeff harbor was literally picture perfect. Totally clear skies, warm water, warm air with just slightest Summer breeze made for an incredible evening on the water. Add in some wildlife sightings (mute swans at the launch, three deer on shore next to the cabanas at Shack Beach & an Osprey at home for the evening right at the PJ Harbor entrance) and all I can say is wow, just Wow. So enjoy the photos but don’t get caught sitting it out again and the miss out on the next one!

Fire Island Light 7.12.2014

The view from atop the Fire Island Light

The view from atop the Fire Island Light

On Saturday morning 6 of us met over at Oak Beach for a 9:00am set off. An easy channel crossing, with all the powerboaters seemingly sleeping in & favorable currents going our way, got us over to our destination at Fire Island Light ahead of schedule. Plenty of time to take a nice tour to the top of the lighthouse, getting a history lesson every step of the way up the winding 156 year old staircase. Just amazing.

Built in 1858 in less than a year for just $40,000!! Double walled and constructed from the inside out using the steel stairs as scaffolding, the 11’ base walls tapered off to 2½’ wide up at the top (167’ high). Once we had reached the top, the incredible 360˚ views were just awesome. We couldn’t have asked for a better day… After some photo-opping on the balcony we made our descent back down the 17 story structure & spend a little time & money at the gift shop.

A nice little lunch break back by our boats and we were on our way again. An easygoing leisurely pace back (with the current once again in our favor) made it a totally enjoyable 2nd half of the trip. With a little wave riding off of the boat wakes, a little dipping off a neighboring bow for some instant cooldown and a few squirrelly tidal swirls to go through made this anything BUT some boring flatwater bay paddle.

So, to wrap it up let me just say good luck to Bob with his brand new boat, congrats to MaryAnne on her first ever bay crossing and special thanks to Steve for planning and leading us on such a wonderful outing. Thanks also to John, who as our backup tripleader was tasked with keeping an eye out for rogue powerboaters heading our way. (there were plenty of them!) The TripPics are all linked here. –Alan M.

Summer Newsletter 14


The Summer Newsletter is now available with lots and lots of pictures.

Here’s what John Jr. had to say: “Hal has done it AGAIN, 36 pages of absolute beauty, pictures and information. I cannot thank Hal enough for putting this together. However it is all of the members who contribute articles to Hal that makes this a Club Newsletter not just Hal’s talk.”

“It is great to have a new member, Troy, who contributed a fantastic article. Our Unofficial/Official photographer Lynne does a great job in showing what our club is about.”

North Atlantic Canoe & Kayak again celebrated the arrival of the summer season with an open paddle on the Browns River in Sayville.  Members and guests ventured out from Captain Kayak onto the river and followed it out past the breakwater into Great South Bay.  The refreshing trip was followed by a brief meeting and pizza party at the shop.  Many thanks to Jerry at Captain Kayak for allowing us to use the shop.

“NACK’s Sebonac Creek to Scallop Pond Kayak Trip June 17, 2014

Lynne, Paul, Anne & Mike, Julie & Bob all had a delightful paddle Tuesday. Sebonac Creek, Southampton, is a beautiful spot and it is wonderful that such an exclusive area like this allows free on-street parking for non-residents.
It was a very “weather” dependent day. In the morning, it was raining hard in some south shore locations, and hardly raining, if at all, in others. We wondered “weather” we would have a storm. We wondered “weather” it was going to get foggier. We wondered “weather” it was going to get sunny.
We wondered whether we would find Bob’s dropped camera; we did not. It turns out there are “Drowning Pools” all over Long Island. We wondered whether the ospreys had already fledged, because they were not seen on their platforms. We found out later that they were spending some time at the numerous duck blinds. For a short time we wondered whether we could easily find Scallop Pond; we did with the help of an app on Lynne’s iPhone.
A great trip!

Peer Practice June 9 2014

By · Comments (2)

Heckscher State Park Peer Practice

The weather looked threatening, but the rain held off. An 11 knot wind was driving the chop on the bay toward the beach. Bob, Rich and I meet Steve on the beach for a pre-practice briefing. Conditions were at the lower parameters at which the Level 3 test will be given. And a wakeup call for basic skills!

With the wind pushing against you and waves bouncing you around, a simple bow recovery became a test for both the paddlers involved.  A stern pry, awkward on flat water, became a natural stroke to control the kayak in a following sea. Rather than slogging away into the chop, pick and time your stroke to paddle downhill. It is an energy saver and great fun. The last lesson of the day was not to exit on the beach side of your kayak.

Bay Day in Oyster Bay 6/1/14

By · Comments (0)

Every year The Waterfront Center, in Oyster Bay plays hosts to adults, children and families the first Sunday in June for Bay Day.

From their website:

“During the event all WFC activities such as sailing, kayaking and Christeen sails are provided at no cost. It is our way of giving back to the community, promoting environmental awareness and stewardship while having a great time. We are excited to invite the community to experience all we have to offer and promote environmental awareness and stewardship; reinforcing our vision so they everyone can enjoy and preserve it for all time. Through Bay Day and its activities we share with the public the importance and connectivity of all environments as a whole and how to best recreate in them.”

The WaterFront Center was created in 2000 to transform the former Jakobson Shipyard site into a hands-on educational and recreational facility. Today this is the home of the WaterFront Center, an environmental education and recreation not-for-profit community center. It is also the home of Christeen, a National Historic Landmark and the oldest surviving Oyster Sloop in North America.

North Atlantic Canoe and Kayak members will be on hand throughout the day with kayak skills demonstrations and information on kayaking opportunities in the area. Stop by and say Hello!! Bay Bay activities will run  Sunday June 1, 2014 from 12 noon until 5 PM.  The WFC is located at 1 West End Avenue, Oyster Bay 11771.
