Greenland Kayak Techniques On-Water Exhibition, Sunday, May 30 at pier 66

By

For those of you in town for the long weekend, this mini-preview of the Hudson River Greenland Festival looks like an interesting diversion.

QajaqUSA and NYRiverSports invite you to an on-water demonstration of traditional Greenlandic paddling skills:

On Sunday May 30th, at 2:00 PM, members of QajaqUSA, the American Chapter of Qaannat Kattuffiat (The Greenland Kayaking Association), will demonstrate in-water Greenlandic traditional qajaq (kayak) skills such as qajaq rolling at Pier 66 in Hudson River Park at West 26th Street.

Come by and watch the show from the pier or with a beer and a burger from the deck of Pier 66 Maritime’s cafĂ© next door. You can also get information on the many non-motorized boating programs available to the public at http://www.pier66nyc.org

This event is being presented in association with Saturday’s International Polar Festival at the American Museum of Natural History, where QajaqUSA members will display replicas of qajaqs from the various coasts of Greenland.
