We had a great 7th Open House on Sunday after the fourth of July and have 9 more Open Houses before the season ends on Labor Day weekend. 

One paddler was joining us for the third team this season after coming once last year.

“I live in the neighborhood and bought my apartment eight years ago, but it took me awhile to take that first step and come out to the boathouse for Open House paddling,” said Damaris Bergas.

“Everybody is welcoming and you guys coach individuals very well.  It’s a fun place to be and I’m excited to be able to come back and learn more about the Hudson river and kayaking,” she said.

If you haven't taken that first step to paddle with the Inwood Canoe Club yet, check out a short video made by ICC Vice Commodore Steve Harris and Senior Member Julie McCoy.  Then come join us on the Hudson river for canoeing and kayaking on Summer Sundays
