The Hudson River Greenland Fest was a success, with a pretty big turnout and great weather.
The location is great, with a nice sheltered bay for rolling classes, cabins, a tent area and big pavilion for acivites and a great sleeping area as well.
The first day was rolling and forward strokes class.
It turned into a good day for forward strokes lessons with strong wind and whitecaps. Many real world experiences for people not used to conditions, many capsizes, most recovering with a roll. Some wet exit and recue practice.
At night we had a BBQ party, silent auction and boat building talks.
The second day was rolling competition, rolling class and kayak relay race. Non-stop fun.
Brooklyn was in the house, enough to make a team for the relay race. Brooklyn came in 3rd.
Next year we'll do better and I suspect a bigger turnout form Brooklyn.
I'll post more later.
