Lots of news on the local paddling scene here in Thunder Bay Ontario. Teaming up with the good folks at Quetico Provincial Park, the Superior Kayak & Canoe Club is co-hosting the "Paddle Your Friends Canoe or Kayak Symposium" on July 5th.
Preceeding this event is 4 days of marathon canoe racing in Quetico Provincial Park. More details will be psoted online with in the next few days, both on my Blog and on my Club Pages for the paddling club.
My new Greenland Paddle Bags are now in stock and going fast. I currently have Black; Black & Blue; and Burgundy to choose from. Nicely paddled, these are awesome bags for protecting your Greenland Paddle. See the webstore for more information.
Regular club paddles start up in May. Tuesday Night Race series is also set to resume in late May (I'm anxiously awaiting arrival of my new 18'6" kevalr marathon C1 solo race canoe to arrive. 26 lbs of speed and fun).
Also, rumour has it that several new Nigel Foster designed sea kayaks are set to arrive in Thunder Bay next month. The all new Whiskey 16 and the Whiskey 18...designed by Nigel Foster, built by Point 65 North of Sweden. I'm happy and excited to be bringing in these fine sea kayaks to the waters of Lake Superior.
Lots more news coming soon, check back often!
