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.

Sebonac Creek to Scallop Pond 6.17.2014

“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

Posted 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

Posted 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.

Peer Practice 5.19.14

Timber Pt (33)

With the weeks just flying by & the long Memorial Day Weekend only days away, far flung NACK members from Eastern Suffolk, Western Nassau & various North & South shore points in between gathered over at Timber Point for our last Peer Practice of the month.

To avoid the brisk wind out on the open river, a decision was made to head over to the protected waters of the ‘Drowning Hole’ to conduct the practice session. With ACA evaluations coming up late next month, some of the newer members were working on the skills required to advance & be able to join in the more advanced paddles coming up this season. More seasoned members took the time to practice their rolls & rescues. The group was a good mix of different skill levels & no matter what your level there is always something new to learn or improve upon.

After the regular session broke up a few of us decided to stay & take a short paddle downriver and were rewarded for our efforts with another beautiful sunset on the way back. (& then greeted with an unwanted welcome from all the gnats & bugs when we came ashore!)  Note to self: Time to keep some bug spray in the day hatch.

Pics & some video are here.      –Alan M.

Peer Practice

Alhambra (20)

Peer Practice ’14 (second session)… …Was just held in Massapequa this past Monday evening @Alhambra Park.

We had a great turnout of 10 NACK members, with quite a few of them coming down up to 1½ hrs. early to get started on this new paddling season! While not everyone was ready to literally ‘take the plunge’ in the still chilly Spring water, about half the members there had no problem getting upside down in their boats. There were all kinds of self and assisted rescues practiced, tandem rescues, towing exercises, you name it; all with a steady onshore wind that made it interesting & challenging to avoid getting blown into the pier or shore side rocks while working on these maneuvers in the slight wind chop.

As the evening wore on, the diminishing winds and the arrival of another L3 level instructor turned the focus to the various draw and pry rudder strokes, with excellent explanation of the advantages of each type given. The how & why of each particular stroke, depending on the wind conditions & combined with which direction you want to turn was very informative.

I encourage anyone still sitting on the sidelines to grab a wetsuit & get out next Monday & join us back at Timber Point for our last practice this month. Come early, Stay late & ‘get the NACK’ !

-Alan Mayors

Here’s a link to some photos of the session.
