update: rigging on Saturday, April 5

April 3, 2014

Just to note: we moved the rigging session to this Saturday, April 5.  10am, East Shore Marina.  We are hoping to have everything completed in two hours and should have a pretty good turnout of club members.  Looking forward to seeing everyone this Saturday, so we can actually be on the water very soon!!


start of a new season!

March 23, 2014

Greetings all,
It was nice to see the club back together yesterday at our spring meeting.  Always exciting to see those who haven’t been out in a while, and to hear everyone’s off-season reports of conditioning and/or recovering to get ready for a fun summer out on the lake.   Congratulations to our new Board for [...]


fall sunset paddles!

September 24, 2013

Greetings all … I think this is my last “blog” of the season, and probably my last paddle in Ithaca!  For this year, anyway.  The club is going to go full force through September and as far into October as the Ithaca weather (and ambitious paddling spirit) allows, but I’m leaving Ithaca for a bit [...]

As school is back in session, we’re going to have some fall novice practices to attract some of our motivated undergrads or anyone in Ithaca who is still just learning about outrigger canoeing and wants to learn paddling techniques and squeeze in some outdoor training before winter sets in!
This coming Monday, September 9, we [...]

Novice Practice!!

June 8, 2013

Phew … finally recovered from a fantastic novice practice this morning!!  It was not looking like the most beautiful day to paddle, totally overcast and in the low 60s (water still barely in the 50s… yikes!) but we had a crew of small but mighty women ready to hit the water.  We easily rolled A’no:wara [...]
