Rocks, Surf, Races

May 10 - May 12

 

Gerry At Quonny by Carl Tjerandsen

ROCKS, SURF, RACES
5/10 – 5/12
COASTAL CONNECTICUT AND RHODE ISLAND
Home to the awesome tide races of the Fishers Island Sound, surf beach venues along the RI south coast and Narragansett Bay and scenic rock gardening on the southern tip of Jamestown, we’ll go where conditions are best and paddler interest is highest.  The focus of this event is to increase comfort and expand capacities in open water.  This is a complex and varied set of venues, allowing a great opportunity for participants to hone their conditions forecasting skills.
 
Tim Gleason, skilled active water coach from RI, joins Gerry to host this event in their native waters. As a marine scientist who grew up on the water and experienced sea leader with international experience, he brings a unique perspective to coaching.  Gerry and Tim love paddling this area and are appreciative of the wide variety of condition options.
Check out the following link to see what this area looks like.  It’s from a promo video put together by paddler/videographer Luke Rovner the Kayak Hipster from Polar Paddle Practicum, 2017.
