Re: Woods Hole to Martha's Vineyard Round trip. Sunday 9/27

Hope you are right about the wind. Been on MV for last week and we've had a pretty good blow for most of it out of NNE and the seas definitely have some chop. On ferry now back to Woods Hole and seas are about 2-3 ft with some white caps.

Hope to catch up with you at a future one

Smooth sailing,

There is a trip that Josko and Dennis are leading for AMC out of Woods Hole on the 22nd I believe called Intro to Sea Kayak part 3, thus my confusion. Josko's trip was to be out of Falmouth/Woods Hole or Cohasset. So Jordan - I'm in with your planned excursion this weekend. Anything else I need to k...

Pool Sessions

Being a relatively new member to this esteemed grp, not in the know about many things including what appears to be an annual winter occurrence, pool sessions in Randolph.

Any details that others could provide, eg, when, specifically where, cost etc is most appreciated.

Cheers,

Re: How to buy a new boat

I had a good experience recently with Charles River Paddle and Canoe. Tried out a number of boats (they let you demo just about anything for 15min at a time). Ended up with new Tiderace Xcite - great boat!
