There is a level 2 paddle on July 1 from Sapowet Cove in Tiverton.

I recall when I first began paddling with RICKA some 10 years ago, there were often two paddles each weekend: one for level 2-3 paddlers and one for more advanced paddlers, i.e., level 4-5.

Some of us have reached an age when it's a bit more difficult to keep up with the younger, stronger paddlers, but still want to paddle on the bay and along the coast. It be great to see more level 2-3 paddles.

Does anyone know the names of the two small islands just south of West and East Islands? They're not named on my nautical chart.

Also, if someone commits a crime in the waters just south of the islands, who has jurisdiction? A lawyer friend who once worked for the RI AG said in this case it would be the State Police.

FWIW, I'm writing a very long short story (which I may expand into a novel), part of which takes place just south of the islands. It's a whodunit but you know whodunit; the challenge in proving whodunit and how he did it.  ;)

There is still room at this Sunday’s Basic Flatwater Paddling Class sponsored by the RICKA Flatwater Group. The class will be held at 1:00 at the EMS Outdoor School on Late Pearl in Wrentham, MA. In this 3-hour class, paddlers will learn the basic strokes and maneuvers to control their boats on flatwater. We will also review basic rescue techniques. The class will be taught by longtime RICKA member and EMS Kayak School Manager Joe Sherlock. An RSVP is required.

To register, please contact Cheryl Thompson at 401-497-5887 or stonefoxfarm@juno.com.
