|Getting into my amazing SnapDragon sprayskirt|
It was an easy launch from Cheryl and Billy's yard. James was paddling with me and I was showing him my amazing Snap Dragon sprayskirt that is drum tight, easy to put on and completely dry! I've never found a better sprayskirt.

How did Peggy find out about this expedition? She was trying to find out about paddling around Manhattan. She visited the websites of NYC paddle clubs. The Sebago Canoe and Kayak Club had a posting about my trip, and Peggy soon found herself reading the Kayak For Safe Passage Kids website. Then she volunteered to host me. But it didn't stop there. She has worked tirelessly organizing kayak groups to meet me, places for me to stay up and down the coast, arranging press coverage and speaking engagements at Rotary Clubs! While I would be paddling the next day out of Yorktown, I would still stay at Peggy's three nights. Too short a time to be with such a whirlwind of enthusiasm and competence!
