Kayaking Group

Lead Kayak: Walter Greene wlgreene1@gmail.com

Kayaking offers physical activity, exposure to nature, and an opportunity to explore your environment from a perspective that is not always easy to reach. It can be a thrilling experience…connecting yourself with the water and the surrounding environment.

Note that the Kayaking Group and this content are under development.

We are in the process of gathering information from those people who have expressed an interest in this group. The feedback will inform what the group will be doing during the kayak season which will run from mid-May until the water drops below 60 (October’ish)

We plan to kayak in our wonderful local waters with occasional trips to waters outside our immediate surrounding towns. Kayaking locations and times will be based on the group’s skills, interest level, tides, and weather.

If you want to join this group, please contact Walter Greene at wlgreene1@gmail.com

Assumption of Risk

(everyone should already have signed this but It will need to be verified before we hit the water)

The Y’s Men participate in a wide variety of activities (more than 25 in all) such as golf, photography, tennis, skiing, bridge, hiking, and sailing. The club also organizes trips and events locally, throughout the United States and internationally. We often have dozens of Y’s Men social events with their spouses or significant others enjoyed cruises, concerts, plays, musicals, plays and dinners. There is always a minor chance of injury on any activity, therefore we ask each member to sign an Agreement and Assumption of Risk.

I acknowledge that I am participating in the Y’s Men of Westport/Weston activities of my own free will, and I assume all risk and take responsibility for any injury including death that I, any member of my family or guest may suffer while participating in these activities, whether on site, remotely, domestically, or internationally.

In consideration of being a member and participating in Y’s Men activities, I hereby release, agree not to sue and discharge the Y’s Men Westport/Weston including its officers, directors, trustees, members, its organizers, volunteers, agents and sponsors from any actions, claims, liabilities, damages, or losses (including, but not limited to, court costs and attorney fees) which I now have or may incur as a result from my participation in such activities.
