General Meeting – August 29, 2012
Reginald “Reg” Lake
Please join your compatriots Wednesday, August 29th, 6:00 PM for
an evening of fellowship and learning with Reginald “Reg” Lake.
Reg is one of the fathers of modern sea and white water kayaking
as well as an award winning sea kayak designer.
Reginald “Reg” Lake is one of the founding fathers of modern
kayaking. Reg started kayaking in 1970 and progressed through both
white water and sea kayaking. He, along with contemporaries Doug
Tompkins, Yvon Chouinard and Royal Robins, had numerous first
descents. He has kayaked many destinations around the world,
including Ecuador, Costa Rica, Pakistan, and especially Chilean
Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, and the like. He is still actively
kayaking at the ripe age of 68 and has in fact just returned from
another Patagonian expedition.
Aside from his kayaking adventures, he is contributing to
performance boat design working closely with the Sterling
Donalson. The award winning Sterling Reflection is based on Reg’s
design concepts. Now, he is hard at work on a smaller performance
sea-kayak model, the Progression, to be released by Sterling
Reg will be presenting his 42 Years in 42 Minutes and will be
available for questions and conversation. It should be a great
evening. We might even get one of his boats in as well.
