Thanks Bill and Downwind Sports for all your great work on this event. We will do our best to continue the amazing legacy of the Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium.

Wow, I did not expect to be here this week! Super excited and a bit overwhelmed (kind of like learning to kayak). Life and paddling are dynamic sports. So I am going to put my WHOLE blade in the water, use the BIG MUSCLES in my body (Doug Neal and Kelly Blades) and LOOK where I want to go….delivering to you the Community, Learning and Adventure that is the Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium.

We are all strong believers that this is a participant driven experience and YOU can be a part of something very special. So please give us a few days to make the tech transitions and embrace the logistical challenges. The new website and re-opening of registration will be available on Memorial Day.

This place will change your life.
