Autumn Gales 2023
October 27, 2023 - October 29, 2023$165 – $475
Autumn Gales is in its second decade of being the premier rough water event on the East Coast and is held in one of the few areas in the U.S. that has tidal currents worthy of holding British Canoeing’s Advance Sea Kayak Leader Awards. Fisher’s Island Sound is an amazing location and we strive to create unique experiences to learn and gain experience with rough water paddling. The Autumn Gales event runs out of Stonington Borough, Connecticut and uses the New England Science & Sailing waterfront facility.
Our high level coaches and rough water guides create an environment where paddler’s can test their comfort zone, gain confidence and continue their skills growth and seamanship. We pride ourselves on a low coach/guide to participation ratio that allows for a lot of individualized coaching. The event is geared towards a variety of paddlers – those that have a solid foundation on flat water and have experienced some bouncy water to those looking to hone their skills in the bigger stuff.
Come be a part of a fun community and sub-culture of rough water paddlers that are empowering to be around – sharing knowledge, exploring and building confidence.
