Event Information


Gales Storm Gathering - October (5), 6-8, 2017

When: October 6-8, 2017 (October 5 is optional)

What: A migratory Great Lakes sea kayaking event for advancing, intermediate and advanced paddlers. Paddlers will benefit from training with top sea kayak coaches from the the US and Canada.

Where: Lake Superior near Munising, Michigan, and the St. Mary’s River at Sault St. Marie

Read: Details at the link below.

Cost: $495 (4 day); $425 (3 day)

Who: SK2/SK3 rating, recent paddling in rough conditions, and standard swim test required. If you are sincerely interested, available for the specific dates, and are aware of the costs (not cheap) and rough/cold conditions involved, feel free to contact me.

Please Note: This is not a Hoofers trip, but an independent event that some members may have interest in attending. This posting is to facilitate planning and logistics for those who may wish to participate.

If you are solidly moving towards the SK2/SK3 and are interested, we can discuss on a case by case basis. I attended this last year. I would be happy to discuss my experiences with you.

Future: If you don't join the gathering this year, I am hoping this type of training event provides an incentive for each of us to increase/improve our paddling and leadership skills.
