Great evening in Hingham last night.

By far the warmest water of the season, and perfect downwind return!

Last Official Skills Session of the Season - Hanson

Hi all,

As much we all wanted to savor and extend the summer we've had, its just about done..... Hopefully the fall will continue to favor us with good paddling weather.

Are folks interested / planning on attending one last Thursday in Hanson to cap off the season?
