Where's Your Canoe Or Kayak - Paddling A Maine River Or Stream In Spring!


After a Maine winter, part of the renewal process of spring is planning to be in your local canoe race.

Others a leisurely drift following the current with boatful of family glad to celebrate the annual tradition. In Houlton Maine, the Meduxnekeag River Canoe Race was started by Ricker College, taken over and guided for many years by the Houlton Rotary Club and in more recent years, the tradition kept alive by Peter Blood and Clint Cushman, two local high school teachers. Todd Willard and Malcolm Nesbitt have taken over the reins for most of the race details now. I called Peter the other day to find out the date for this year's event and his cell found him in Florida enjoying retirement. May 2nd the magic date to circle on the calendar this year. 

Have you ever been in a Maine canoe race? Class five rapids and rocks that pin you under and smash your neighbor's canoe may be the slide show now playing in your head. But consider there are over 3000 rivers, streams in Maine and that there is an event, a venue for anyone to enjoy. Many of these waterways in the dead of summer would not have much live or the volume of water winter snow melting and spring run off cause.  Enjoy the extra volume of water that makes them lively, faster and the sense of community of seeing old friends in Maine this year. Here is one Maine canoe-kayak race website to use as a reference for tons of Maine events to consider near you.
