Off to the races….

The 2011 NFCT Interns are hot on the trail. After an intense few weeks of training the crews are putting their energy and knowledge to work making the NFCT continue to be the best canoe trail out there.

All houses are built on foundations, and it is awful hard for anyone person to build a foundation on their own. Once again a community of support came together to get this season’s interns ready to hit the trail. Rob Scharges from Vermont Canoe offered to spend a day with the crew training them on paddling techniques for fastwater. We headed down the old Missisquoi River putting in at Sheldon Springs and making our way to East Highgate, taking the time to practice technique and learn about the flow and power of moving water along the way.
