    I'll be visiting Nanaimo from NY on June 14, 15 & 16 and I am looking for paddling partners for day trips to local destinations. I'll be happy to reciprocate with local paddling adventures in NYC. Feel free to reach out directly to ilene11217@yahoo.com.

    Thanks,

    Ilene

    I am a strong paddler with good skills. I am looking for company and local knowledge, not babysitting. I hope to go out for 15-20 miles, but I am entirely flexible.

    Best,

    Ilene

    You might be able to connect with someone through the local club.

    Ilene:
    Will you have a vehicle (with racks), a kayak and your paddling gear, or will you need to borrow/rent?

    Thanks for the heads up about the meetup group. I will reach out to them. I am planning on renting a boat locally and will not have a vehicle to transport it, unless the rental agency can provide that service. I will also happily borrow equipment if that is an option.

    I'm not sure how much access I will have to a computer going forward so please use my phone 646 334-4826 or email address ilene11217@yahoo.com if you need to reach me.

    Thanks,

    Ilene
