Paddling Committee Report for 2009

The Paddling Committee of the New Hampshire Appalachian Mountain Club posted over 100 trips and events in 2009, including touring trips on flat and moving water; whitewater river trips; sea kayaking trips; and recreational evening paddles. Most of our trips were single day trips, and we also ran a number of overnight and multi-day trips (wilderness excursions as well as base camp paddles).

We have continued our very successful Wednesday Evening Recreational Paddle series. These trips provided terrific opportunities for new members to join up with more experienced paddlers to try out paddling and demo a variety of boats.

In 2009, we held our first Sea Kayaking Workshop at Knubble Bay Camp. At this weekend-long workshop, students learned about safety, skills, gear, and trip planning among other things. The event was a great success, and our Sea Kayaking leaders hope to present another workshop next year.

Our annual Spring Class II Whitewater School was a great success as well. Most of those students have returned to paddle with the club on many subsequent trips, and many have become regular paddlers with the AMC.

Twice each year, we host meetings (fall and spring) for our General Membership to conduct committee business, hear sub-committee reports, schedule upcoming trips, and socialize over potluck dinner.

In addition to our paddling trips, weekend classes, and General Meetings, we offer additional educational courses in safety and rescue, leadership, and whitewater skills.

Paddling on rivers, lakes, and ponds throughout New England, we offer organized trips, courses, instruction, and great fun for canoeists and kayakers of all experience levels.
Come paddle with us!
