St. George River Race Sees Nice Turnout
















According to this Bangor Daily News article, over 100 paddlers took part in the St. George River Race earlier today. (The article also features a short video).

I've also posted my photos from the race here.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

A note from Jeff Owen, President of the Maine Canoe & Kayak Racing Organization (MaCKRO) on the eve of the season-opening St. George River Race:

Paddled the St. G with the clinic yesterday with a nice large group, experts and novices (and everything in between). The water level is awesome--most rocks covered, some really nice wave trains and eddy lines, but not too pushy. The race should be fun and fast.

BUT, please be extra cautious regarding proper clothing with the forecasted temperatures only in the teens or twenties for race time. Those are "dangerous cold" temperatures if you get wet anywhere where help is not immediately available. If you see paddlers on shore who have just swum, it'll be a good day to just automatically pull in and help (instead of the usual yell of "you okay?"). Let's be safe out there!

It's been a year?! Unbelievable.

My website, www.kenduskeagstreamcanoerace.com, is now entering its third year. And while it does sort of seem as though it has been three years since I launched the site, I cannot believe that it has been a year (to the day) since I started this blog for the Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race.

In any case, stay tuned for race updates and more!
The 2007 registration form should be online in a couple of weeks.

Dry Dock (But Not For Long)



Well, it's almost that time of year again. The 40th Annual Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race is only five weeks away, and the 2006 registration form is now available for downloading.

Remember, registering early saves you money ($17 per person as opposed to $30 per person if you wait until race day to register).

And you won't have to deal with the stress of waiting in line.
