Sept 02 - Kouchibouguac Grey Seal Adventure
The weather co-operated, and 21 boats (22 people) showed up for this one. 
The seals, while present, were not fully co-operative.  Even the sand-bar I expected to find them on was gone.
Maybe next time.

Sept 05 - Circumnavigate Shediac Island
This was the last Wednesday paddle scheduled for the season, and we hated to miss it.  The weather was looking bad all day, cold and very windy, but about three hours before the scheduled start-time, the winds died.  The clouds were very much present, but the biting wind was gone.
Seven turned out for the 11.5km sunset paddle around the island.

Sept 08 - Kouchibouguac Grey Seal Adventure
Once again, it was windy, but this time it was from the West and didn't cause any difficult waves, but was in our faces for the last 5 or 6 km of the paddle.  We had an even dozen on this 14.7km paddle.

Sept 16 - Bourgeois / Caissie Cape Government Wharf
It wasn't what you could call warm, but it was a nice paddle.  Four turned out for this 10.3km paddle. 
There was a bit of a breeze from the North, which meant that I got to do some minor surfing on the return trip (so I could take pics of them as they paddled past me, and then surf ahead for another photo shoot).

Sept 19 - Aboiteau Wharf - Roll & Wet-Exit Practice
For me, it's more wet-exit / assisted-rescue than rolling practice.
