Inspiration for Paddlers - Older and Women

Audrey Southerland of Hawaii paddled solo in Alaska for decades, starting at about 50 years old. An amazing woman. You can read of her in a Sea Kayaker interview at http://www.seakayakermag.com/2004/Oct04/Sutherland_1.htm

I'm sorry that I'm contributing so late to this post, but I really appreciate this invitation to know a women who started kayaking at 50...
Thank you,
Maria

Great to have you on board. Never too late to start paddling - I was 60 when I started two years ago and there are other 'oldies' as beginners in our club this year.
We do sea, river (white-ish water) and longer trips to the islands off Britttany . So, perhaps you'll come and paddle with us or we'll come over there one day.
Pass on the massage. Let other kayakers know that couchsurfing exists and there's a group especially for them.
