Beautiful weather with light NE winds until we got to the open ocean. Then even the light breeze dissapated and we had no wind! Quite amazing to be out in the open Atlantic Ocean with those kind of conditions. Checkout Martiens photos in the Photo Gallery. Cool

Looks like a great time (again) and I see Andy is now using a Greenland paddle, nice! Thanks for the report and Martien, your pictures are great, just need to have someone take your picture. One question Greg, did you guys stop for BBQ after the trip?

Hi Tom.
No BBQ that day, it seemed everyone had "places to be" that evening (myself included). Regarding the Greenland paddles, yes a few more paddlers are now in a "testing mode" with them. Doctor Bob (Phillips) is now building them and in fact made one for me a few months ago. I've used it a few times but not ready yet to "convert". In addition, Bruce (new club president) has some nice paddles that he made and then Gus has been using a Greenland paddle for a few years now. Helped a lot with his shoulder problems. We talked about doing some photo closeups with the different carved styles - coming soon.
