"The event was spectacular!   We had hundreds of people stop by the site, and we were busy giving demo lessons for the full four hours--with four beginner boats on the water at all times.  (Our volunteers were amazing!  We had about 20 people, youth and masters, helping out.)

 


Cindy Burnham (champion of Maple Cove!) reported that Jersey Paddler had more than 200 people participate in kayak demos.  Monmouth Boat Club had two Flying Scots under sail for the duration of the event. 


   The weather was beautiful, the press was on hand, and at least three politicians (Frank Pallone included) came by.  By any standards, Paddle the Navesink Day was a real success."


-- Linda Ensor, who organized and coordinated the event for NRR
