The Olympic Kayak Experience by Dr. John H. Medical Doctor Posted Thu 23 Sep 2010 3:00am During the Summer, I kayak the Charles River each evening using performance and fitness kayaks.

A Race for Life by Tim Brink Posted Fri 07 Aug 2009 12:07pm Do not fail To learn from The pure voice of an Ever-flowing mountain stream Splashing over the rocks. 10,000 cfs of brown water ripping through a normally tame river corridor, 20,000 thoughts, tearing at my soul.

Kayaking the Charles River by Dr. John H. Medical Doctor Posted Thu 21 May 2009 10:09pm From Spring to Fall each year, I kayak 6 miles a day on the Charles River between route 128 and the Moody Street Dam.

The risk of hypothermia is much less when the water temperature is above 55 and the air temperature is abov ... Read on »
