Seriously, Bring the Yak. I won't let you go ouside if I feel that it is to risky. I will check out how many Yaks, and see that they are paired up with expert
with a beginer, everyone that has one or able to get one has got to learn. There is many places that you can safely paddle a Yak, one that comes to mind is Little Narragansett Bay. Any questions I will try an answer. When I had my Yak I only rolled it 3 times, and I am still alive, didn't lose anythhing either.
