Boat Demo Day & Barbecue at Jamaica Bay

Date and Time

Saturday, April 27, 2019

Location

New York, New York City,
NY

Registration

Registration is required for this activity.

Overview

Come try all types of boats to help plan your season's future instructionals, day trips, and expeditions. We'll offer demos and laid-back, quick starts using: quiet water tandem or solo canoes, sea kayaks, "playful" whitewater canoes or kayak, and likely even the war canoe. Try them all! Hear about all the possible day trips, instructional weekends, and wilderness expeditions available throughout the coming season with the CKC paddling program. Registration is limited, so apply early and let us confirm your commitment. Priority will be given to AMC Young Members. With Sebago Canoe Club as our gracious host, at publicly accessible 1400 Paerdegat Bay, in Canarsie, you can come see a whole other view of the city---the NYC skyline as viewed while paddling. Since this is also a designated wildlife refuge area, don't be distracted by the many exotic shore birds flying about. Then, stay for the barbecue and picnic at Sebago's gardens and waterside yard. All equipment, including personal flotation devices and paddles, are included. Come with extra fleece and dry clothes and crocks or similar paddling shoes. At least half the available spots will go to Young Members participants first, then to anyone wait-listed. Please indicate when you register what prior Young Members activity you've attended.
