A Tale of Joy and Sorrow

Posted by: | Comments (3)

At about 5:30am on February 11th, I loaded the kayak on the car with the help of my wife, before driving her to the train station. We set out pre-coffee, and my brain shifted into autopilot as if it were my normal commute. Add to that, that we were running tight on time for her to make her train. With my focus on getting her to the platform steps asap, it never occurred to me that I even had the boat on the car as I entered the parking structure, and the clearance bar caught under the bow of the boat. 

It pried the bow up until the front of the boat flexed enough to allow the bar to snap free. The front hatch completely blew off, the deck seam split in the bow, and the interior seam tape delaminated in various spots from bow to cockpit. And a few long cracks around the deck and hull to boot. Thankfully I did not have bow lines on or I’d also have a bent hood, and other damage to the front end of the car. The crossbars on the outback bent with the pressure, but they didn’t fail either. 

Homeowner’s insurance is covering the boat (minus the deductible), and a replacement Progression is already being hand made for me. Alan helped me bend the crossbars back, and more or less…all is well. 

The takeaway of this sad tale is simply to remain aware of where you are and what is on your roof!

I put the video together as a part of my emotional healing process. As you can imagine…I too was a bit of a wreck!

I’d like to share the wonderful compilation that Kayak Hipster (a.k.a. Luke Rovner) edited which gives a great visibility into the Hudson River Greenland Festival. For those of you who haven’t gone, it makes for a fantastic, inexpensive and nearby getaway in June with some really lovely people. Rather than blab on here about it, I’ll let Luke and his subjects do it for me!

For anyone looking for more info on HRGF, Greenland events and skills, or Luke’s work, below are a handful of great links:

Here is a rather long video/slideshow from this past weekend’s [non-official-NACK trip!] venture out to play in the ebbing tide race at Bug Light off of Orient, NY. Tom, Mike, Chris, & Alan headed out to test some of their improving skills after the training sessions up in Connecticut with Greg & Paula from kayakwaveology. It was a great spot, with the racing ebb just feet from a sandy spit of land where we could pull off in an eddy and rest, eat, and set up a camera on a tripod. We hope you enjoy watching. We sure loved the trip!

Winter came to a close with a flurry of back to back pool sessions.

There was great turnout at all six of them, and great to see people keeping their skills sharp and picking up new ones along the way in the “off” season. Self and assisted rescues, new rolls, balance braces, sculling, paddle strokes, and broken paddles all served as a pretext to further not only our skill sets but to strengthen our camaraderie and trust in each other for when we are out on the water.

Below are some bits from the final session. Please note that if you ever want to be filmed for practice, analysis, or to share with your friends and family, always feel free to ask. We have a slew of folks who are camera happy, and they’ll be pleased as punch to record you whether in the pool, out in the wild, or in the parking lot 🙂

Hard Water

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Pool sessions through the winter are nice, but for five intrepid NACK paddlers, access to open water will not be denied!
The rest of the photos and videos are available here.

Edit:
The seals in the area seemed much more comfortable inspecting us and we got to see some of the more rare local wildlife such as the Cupsogue Yeti. It may have a crush on Mr. Mayors.
