Just got this from Captain Jerry Collins at Captain Kayak. The Kayak Fishing Classic at Jamaica Bay will be here before we know it. We are all ready for some warmer weather and the feel of that tug on the line. The Kayak Fishing Classic at Jamaica Bay is a great way to catch the first fish of the year and hook up with old and make some new friends, all for the benefit of worthy causes. Those of us who share the enthusiasm for the sport of Kayak Fishing know this is a premier event  that shouldn’t be missed.  Registration is open now.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Kokatat Cold Water Apparel Clinic at New York Kayak Company 12/12/15

Interested paddlers are invited to participate in free activities at New York Kayak Company (Pier 40, Hudson River Park) this Saturday, December 12th. They include a Cold Water Apparel Clinic, Dry Suit Demo, Gasket Repair Demonstration, Go Pro Clinic, and a big Holiday Sale!

At 11 AM, Kokatat Factory Rep Tom Harsh will present a talk on how to dress for off season paddling. Kokatat makes it easy to manage off season challenges to safety, comfort and performance. Topics will include strategies for avoiding hypothermia, proper layering, and material selection. He will examine the differences between various wet and dry items and how to select the garments that best suit both your off season paddling goals and budget.

Have you ever worn a dry suit? This is your chance to not only try one on, but people who BRING THEIR OWN IMMERSION FOOTWEAR and sign a waiver can see what its like to go for a short swim in a dry suit – it’s really fun!

At Noon, shop owner Randy Henriksen will demonstrate how to replace a neck gasket on a dry suit or dry top.

At 1PM Tom will present an introduction to Go Pro for SUP and Kayak, and participants will be able to get a free SD card and accessory discounts with a new GoPro purchase.

There’s also special Holiday Bargain Pricing for this event only: save 30% on all in stock Kokatat apparel, dry suits included and 15% off any out of stock orders.

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.”

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Bay Day in Oyster Bay 6/1/14

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.
