Topic: “It’s EZ to paddle from your yacht”
Speaker: Steve Scherrer, Kayak, Canoe, and SUP (Stand up Paddleboard) Ambassador and Instructor
Reminder, we have two NEW menu choices, thanks to the team at IVAR’s Salmon House (see below). Steve Scherrer is joining us all the way from Ocean Park, WA and is going to show us how Paddle powered vessels (Canoes, Kayaks and SUPs – Stand up Paddleboards) can be a super friendly way to get out on the water and a great addition to bigger boats. REMEMBER: Please use the Comments box in your RSVP on Evite to advise how many people and which dinner menu choice each would like.
Steve Scherrer started paddling a canoe in Boy Scouts in 1966 and has been in around and on boats ever since. With his wife, Cindy, he has lived on-board and sailed a number of sailboats over the years. He was a co-founder of Alder Creek Kayak and Canoe in Portland (1986-2004) He worked as a kayak designer and instructor for Confluence Watersports (2004-2014) and has spent the past five years traveling the country with his wife and dog, Piper, as SUP ambassadors and instructors representing a number of manufacturers. He is presently an American Canoe Association SUP and Kayak Instructor Trainer Educator.
Paddle powered vessels (Canoes, Kayaks and SUPs – Stand up Paddleboards) can be a great way to get out on the water. Adding them to your yacht, as toys and transportation, is easy once you understand the basics. We’ll discuss many of the options available and look at the joys and challenges of each. We’ll have an example of a highly portable, inflatable SUP to show off, and will go over some of the basics of paddling. Learn how Paddling and Yachting go hand in hand!
