    • Kiwanis Park, Rotterdam

    SWC’s Northern New York Paddlers offer recreational and instructional paddling on Monday nights at Kiwanis Park in Rotterdam Junction. We meet at 6pm to be on the water by 6:30, beginning in May and running through September. Feel free to bring your own canoe (solo or tandem), kayak, or paddleboard, as well as paddles, PFDs (life jackets), and signaling devices (whistle). The club owns some canoes, kayaks, paddles, and PFDs. The Greiners can bring those, and several more, if you contact them at least one day prior. Call or text Kim at 518-421-2939 or Ed at 518-421-2947. Don’t worry about coming alone, there will always be someone with whom you can paddle. We look forward to having you join in the fun beginning May 1, 2023.

    • Aqueduct Park, Niskayuna
    Our Time Trials will start on Wednesday May 3 and be held every Wednesday until September 20. This is a timed event on a fixed 3.6 mile course. The object is to compare your times from week to week, measuring progress as the year goes on and also to determine how different factors, such as water depth, wind, current, boat type and partners affect your time. It takes place at Aqueduct Park in Niskayuna. The race starts promptly at 6:30, but it’s a good idea to get there at least a half hour early.
