Maine Bound holds 'boat nights'

Written by

ORONO - With the snow coming down, it may not look like a good day to be paddling, but some people had other ideas.

The Maine Bound Adventure Center hosts "boat nights" at the University of Maine.


Kayaks, canoes, or anything else you can paddle is welcome.


There's no formal instruction at these events, but people there are always willing to help.


"This is open boat night for the community of white water rafters and canoers." Hank Gilson, a Maine Bound  Employee said. "We have this event so they can practice their flat water skills like rolling and bracing or general strokes."


Sunday's boat night was the last one of the season.


When it gets a little warmer, Maine Bound holds white water clinics.
