NEED A CREW FOR SATURDAY - 40+ FEMALE PADDLER


Positive, determined, strong 47-year-old female paddler looking for a crew. A latecomer to sign up for QL, my club coaches (Philadelphia Outrigger Canoe Club - see below) can provide objective references.

In a past life, I paddled dragon boat with a super strong Senior A women’s team (sitting in 2, 8, 9, sometimes stroke) ; we won US club crew nationals and competed abroad. For the past 3 years, I’ve paddled solely OC (and ramped up running distances as well) to find balance and pursue a love of endurance over sprints. Stick-to-it-ness — stubbornness? ;) — is my jam!

Will continue training with my home club (POCC) as they prepare established crews for QL.
Will sit anywhere, and have experience and am comfortable in stroke/2, especially given my size (5’4”).

Anyone have a spare seat for this determined orphan?
Thanks for considering! (Whew, this feels like a dating app profile 😅)
