Kayaking on the open water can be freeing, but for those with disabilities, it can be limited and frustrating.
The Grasse River in Canton, New York, is a favorite spot for kayakers and other paddlers, but until now, it was difficult for adaptive paddlers to enter and exit their craft. In April 2022, BoardSafe Docks and the leaders and concerned non-profits changed all that.
Although there are other ADA-compliant boat launches in the area, the unique BoardSafe kayak launch makes it possible for adaptive paddlers to enter and exit their craft safely by themselves.
