Recreational Kayaking Fatality

Friday, April 1st, 2016

In the interests of trying to disseminate accurate information about a incident that is certainly important to kayakers in southeast Wisconsin, I have pieced together the following from a variety of sources including WITI, WTMJ, WISN, CBS-58, The Ozaukee Press, and The Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel. On March 16, 2016 around 3:30pm, two brothers from West Bend […]

SherriKayaks on Shelfari

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Just a quick note that I have linked my Shelfari profile to my website.  You can find my bookshelf on the “Recommended Reading” page of this website.  I have some more tidying up to do on my profile as I just downloaded my old “ Reading List” from LinkedIn over to Shelfari and there are […]

2013 SherriKayaks Schedule Coming Soon

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

I must apologize for being so lax in my blog posts of late.  Those of you who know me well know that I just recently became a grandma again for the 2nd and 3rd time (my son and his wife had twins). This is supposed to be my “slow” time of year, but I seem […]

Reminiscing “Old School”

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

As I was doing a bit of tidying up in my office, I came across a stack of books that in paddle sports would be considered “ancient history”.  They are my collection of instructional paddling books published before 1980.  I have them listed below. My “Old School” Collection of Paddle Sport Books The All-Purpose Guide […]

Farewell to a Wave Warrior

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

I was stunned last evening to see a message that extreme sea kayaker, Eric Soares passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday, February 1, 2012,.  He was only 58 years old. For those of you who may be relatively new to paddle sports or are not familiar with sea kayaking in particular, Eric Soares was […]

Schedule Changes and Additions

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Once more I apologize for not getting any new posts up on my blog.  Taking care of a husband with a broken leg who cannot drive and needs to go to physical therapy three times a week has left me with not a lot of extra time lately.  Please keep checking back as I will […]

Change of Plans

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

I must apologize for not having posted any new blogs recently.  In the last two weeks, things have changed rather significantly in my daily life.  Up until June 2nd, I was preparing for the trip of a lifetime, canoeing the Thomsen River for 16 days on Banks Island in the Northwest Territories of Canada.  Then […]

Something More Important Than Paddling

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Nearly four years ago, on Thursday, June 7, 2007, a tornado devastated the Bear Paw Outdoor Adventure Resort along the Wolf River in White Lake, Wisconsin.  Thankfully, no one at the resort was seriously hurt or killed despite several buildings being blown off their foundations.  Dozens of paddlers who had regularly stayed at the resort […]

Cold Water Kills!

Monday, April 11th, 2011

I’ve been pretty busy lately teaching kayaking at some local high school physical education classes.  The teaching isn’t too hard, but all the boat loading, unloading, and gear hauling takes its toll on me physically, not to mention having to get up at 5am this week.  As a result, I haven’t gotten a blog posted […]

Introducing Kids to Paddling

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Now that I’m a grandma, I’ve been thinking about how I’m going to teach my new granddaughter to paddle in a few years.  I had a chance to do this many years ago when my son and my nieces were little, but it seems like it’s even more important nowadays to get kids outside and […]
