Winter Social

The Winter Social at Bath Brewing was a huge success with 20 members enjoying good food, brew and conversations. Big thanks to Sergeant Hladik of the Warden Service for his talk on cold water survival, and to John Mathieu for setting everything up!

The following are the links that Sergeant Hladik provided on the videos from Dr. Giesbrecht.

2023 Winter Pool Sessions

We'll be holding sessions in both Portland and Boothbay this year. Sessions can be scheduled online at EventBrite. This is a great opportunity for those new to paddling who would like to practice essential self-rescue and assisted-rescue skills, others who want to work on bracing and more experienced paddlers who wish to develop the muscle memory for bombproof Eskimo rolls in a safe indoor pool setting. Although formal instruction will not be provided, the mix of people with different skill levels will allow for the sharing of tips and techniques.

Sessions will be $25 for members. ($35 for non-members) Boats must be cleaned before launching into the pool. Hoses may be available at each venue. For more information or questions regarding the Portland sessions contact Kyle Martin at Boothbay sessions contact Matt Lutkus at
